For the last couple of days I've grabbed fleeting glimpses of a white coloured starling feeding at my bird feeder but never had the camera to hand this morning I did and managed to grab a semi decent photo of the bird. certainly the first I've ever seen. You can see it clearly feeding with the other starlings in the group

Bit of a rarity George I would have thought, is that a real butterfly on the fence?

Nice shots Pete. I keep meaning to try and get a few pics of some gulls. I think a bag of chips would be good bait.

A couple of gull photos.

There is a female Goosander under that lot. All for a piece of bread :)

Aye, I'm not too enamoured with gulls either. They breed up on roof of the flats here from June to September. If it's not the adults incessant squawking at nothing, it's the young ones crying all bleedin' day. Gonnae shut the f*** up! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

Anyway, here's some burds from our trip to Orkney last month. Bonxies (great skuas) abounded on Loch Hundland. A pair of them and a greater black-backed gull found a dead bird in the water and were so intent on feeding on it, they barely bothered when we approached for a closer look...

Aye, they are real hard cases. Note how the greater black back (nae mean punter itself in the hardman stakes - and quite a bit bigger than the bonxie) is giving sway to them!

Still playing the the dSLR but starting to get used to all the settings and sorting out exposure and stuff. Went out for a practice in a break in the rain and was relatively happy with these two. Apart from photographing something more interesting lol, I would really appreciate any feedback on how to improve my images.
