Black headed gulls at Camber

We went for a short walk on the beach this morning, and there were lots of black headed gulls flying around, looking for food in the breaking waves, so I got some nice pics. You'll notice that although these are black headed gulls, their heads aren't very black! They only have black heads in the summer, in the winter there's only a hint of their summer colouring.
Here's a nice sequence, though the bird didn't get the fish this time, despite two attempts:
This time though, a small fish is caught:
They weren't the only ones out making the most of the waves, we saw these windsurfers too:
That's all for now, we might go to the wood tomorrow - I've got a new double pulley to test out with the ropes!
