Not for Owls

So says this seagull as he sits atop a telescope meant for owls!

I didn’t have a chance to compose this image any better as I wanted to capture him before he flew off. I’ve a bit of a bird phobia from childhood (love birds but the flapping sound sends me into paroxysms of fear). I quite surprised myself as I stepped very gingerly towards him – his eyes fixed on mine all the while. Photographed on Aberystwyth sea front.
