Bird weekly this week is looking for birds beginning with ‘G’. I don’t have all that many examples. But gulls, obviously gulls. There’s a whole row of them in the header photo.
I have a shot of herring gulls looking imperiously down over the town of Whitby, and a black-headed gull fossiking on the beach there.
Then there are guillemots on the Farne Islands…
And geese – always geese. Be sure to click on the second image to see the whole happy family
We’ve all heard of sheep dogs. But did you know they can turn their minds to herding geese too, if required?
