Japan day 1 (28 December): a selection of small gulls

Choshi, Japan, is of course famous for its gulls. I arrived on 27 Dec for a 9 day visit. This post shows some small gulls seen on my first day. The image above shows Vega and Black-tailed Gulls.

Black-tailed Gull. For a moment I thought this bird was carrying a fish! But actually it proved to be a fishing weight and hook attached to its foot.
