Gulls Gulls Gulls

This mornings task was quite simple, try and photograph Western Olivaceous Warbler which we have heard but only seen briefly, skulking around in reed/scrub habitat near El Hondo. On the drive there we passed a field that was just being flooded so decided to pull over for five minutes as it already held numerous species of Gulls, Collared Pratincole and a couple of Glossy Ibis. Five minutes turned into over an hour as there was such a high turnover of Gulls and at one point we had five species of gull in the lens at once - Black-headed, Mediterranean, Yellow-legged, Audouin's and Slender-billed. By the time we reached the Olivaceous Warbler site the rain had started to fall so no pictures of the Oli's today sorry, there's always tomorrow!?
