Hi Folks, just thought I'd share this with you...

It was car-boot day today, in the fields behind our house.  As usual when the sale ended, a crowd of seagulls turned up to clear the scraps that were left behind by the punters.  And what a crowd it was!  I don't think I've ever seen so many gulls here before.  There were all sorts wheeling and diving and skimming the air.  The sky was bright blue with very few clouds and the sun shone so brightly, it was quite dazzling.  The huge flock circled above me (I know, I know - I was pushing my luck standing under them looking up, but it was hard to avoid!)  What was magic was the sun shining through their wings... they looked like silver - absolutely shimmering!  What a fabulous sight, I'm so glad to have seen it.  Unforgettable!
