More Iceland Gull photos.

After the early fog lifted the sun came out and it was a glorious day!

Four Meadow Pipits were on Pagham Spit and at least 3 Chiffchaffs were in the gorse. Greenfinches and Linnets were very active in the gorse throughout the spit and adjacent to the Lagoon.
The female Goldeneye was still present and the Iceland Gull was still in its usual spot at the far (eastern) end of the Lagoon. I tried to get some 'different' shots of the Iceland but it tends to do very little to create interest. However the light on the water was interesting and it did flutter and create a few possibilities!

I wonder if it will depart soon or stay the summer...who knows!
