I am currently down on the Mornington Peninsula, in Victoria, visiting my parents for some R & R.
For this week's World Bird Wednesday, I am showcasing the Silver Gull - the most common gull in Australia. Silver Gulls congregate in a wide range of places and they are opportunistic scavengers, eating almost any food.
These images were taken along the Yarra River in Melbourne city. The adult Silver Gull has silver-grey wings with black tips, red-orange ring around the eye and a bright red-orange beak & legs - the brighter the colour of the beak & legs, the older the bird.
These next images were taken on St Kilda & Seaford beaches.
The juvenile Silver Gull has brown eyes, dark grey-brown beak and legs and mottled brown on grey wings.
Sadly I missed this weeks link up due to spending 3 days in Melbourne city without internet.
