Apart from their noise, the plumage looks very subtle, the bill is quite small and yellow and they have a lovely dark eye. Contrast this to some other gulls that have large aggressive looking bills and yellow beady eyes and the Kittiwake seems like a real pussycat.
These birds were busy making nests and generally jostling for positions on the cliffs. It was lovely to watch them sore and hang in the air. Quite possibly my favourite gull.
With some comfy nest material.
It is beautiful! Gorgeous images! Happy Friday, have a great weekend!ReplyDelete

Nice work Adam. I remember when as a family we camped along the Yorkshire coast I grew to love the call of Kittiwakes. Now that i only see them passing along the west coast I never hear that call. I wish I could.ReplyDelete

Oh, I'd love to see a kittiwake in person!ReplyDelete

Beautiful captures! I love the soft gray in their feathers... such a lovely, calm color.ReplyDelete
Very pretty birds! They look so SOFT!ReplyDelete
I can't believe you caught that nesting material shot! Great job.ReplyDelete
I thought I had never seen a kittiwake but seeing your pictures I think I may have done but just not realised it. I must see if they live in Normandy and head out to find them if they do.ReplyDelete
