Adult Caspian Gulls, Dumpiai - some real beauties

There is something oddly satisfying about kneeling down on a rubbish dump and having a beautiful adult cachinnans walk towards and come within a couple of metres of you, happily feeding away. So, this post brings back fond memories of long sunny days spent photographing cachinnans on Dumpiai dump , Klaipeda, Lithuania (September 2010).

A large and very aggressive (presumably male) bird. It was calling very regularly and seemed to dominate all other gulls present.

This and the photos below all show the same individual
