A web site dedicated to gulls in North East Scotland and beyond

Some raptors from Lleida, Spain
I was in Spain working from 23 April until 2 May, based at Lleida. The drylands around the city are great for birds and the city rubbish dump can be really good for raptors. Here are some pics taken on 28 April close to the city (mainly at the landfill site).
Many Griffon Vultures were present at the landfill site (I estimated a couple of hundred on the dump and passing overhead during the course of an afternoon visit).
I live close to the village of Newburgh in North-east Scotland. My local birding patch is the Ythan estuary and, especially in the winter months, Peterhead. Nowadays most of my birding time is spent gull watching.
This web site is really just a way to make my pictures useful in some way, rather than having them sitting unused on my computer. I hope you find them interesting, useful and stimulating. Most pictures are gulls, but there are some other birds dotted around - please browse through the older posts...
