3 days in Northumberland - the best of the rest (birds)
I had the opportunity to photograph one or two other species of birds whilst I was in Northumberland. One such bird was the Oystercatcher. I really like these birds but have very few photographs of them , and those I have are of flocks of birds rather than individual portaits. I was really surprised to see an Oystercatcher walking around Staple Island followed by its chick. I didn't get chance to photograph the chick but did manage a couple of shots of the adult.
The next shots are of a Cormorant that I found near Seahouses harbour when I was following the Eider Ducks.
Next is a set of images of Black Headed Gulls in flight, taken on Inner Farne whilst I was photographing Sandwich Terns. The first is a juvenile - I love the mottled patterns on this bird. The next two are adult birds.
And the last is a fairly standard close up portrait of a juvenile Herring Gull that was sitting on the harbour wall in Seahouses.

I hope you have enjoyed my bird photos from Northumberland. The Farne Islands are a truly magical place and I would recommend a visit (or two, or three......) to anyone!
