Little Gulls

Gileston Warm water outfalls from the Aberthaw power station usually gets a few Little Gulls most winters.
At present there are three 1st winter plumage birds.
Photographing them is a real challenge, light being the problem. You are always looking into the sun. Occasionally they came close enough for a good shot, but the light wasn`t good enough!
The best time is about 1 hour either side of low water and early morning is best. I struggled for decent light yesterday; only when I walked away did the sun come out, but had family duties to attend to.

Hopefully they will stay long enough till I can get there again!
