"Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head..."
Lovely bit of photo-bombing by a first-winter 'Azores Gull'.
A different oooooge great big one.
Second-winter angel of death.
One or two birds showed a reasonable amount of head streaking producing a slightly hooded effect,...
... but the general impression of all five individuals was of uniformly pale birds, perhaps they'd spent their winter in a bleaching southerly sun. Feather mites were apparent on at least a couple of the birds.
Contrasted beautifully with the local volcanic rock, nice little test of the new camera's dynamic range.
