Puffin and The Gulls

Photographs © John H. Luxton 2006

Whilst standing on the Traders' Wharf at Dún Laoghaire Harbour on February 23, 2006 I spotted what looked to be a good photo opportunity.

Two gulls kept walking up and down the wall with CIL tender PUFFIN in the back ground.

Now if only I could get the gulls and PUFFIN close enough together one could get a shot of two sea birds together.

As I walked one way the gulls moved the other. After five minutes of trying, and aware I was being watched by the occupants of two cars who must have thought I was going a bit dotty, I gave up, but at least I captured the gulls in one of the shots - just!
