Mediterranean Gull and Peregrine, Lancashire

March 24, 2011:
A short visit to the north of the county taking advantage of the continued warm weather provided good views of a Mediterranean Gull amongst many Black-headed Gulls and also a Peregrine staking out its territory.

The bird was not always popular with the neighbouring Black-headed Gulls though and eventually flew away.

However, other birds kept well clear of the Peregrine especially having seen its blood-stained breast feathers.

  1. Some nice photos of the Med Gull and Peregrine, I take it the Peregrie was quite a distance away?
