Great black-backed gull (Larus marinus) at Grutness, Shetland


I managed to take a few pictures and short video of pair of the largest and meanest species from the gulls' family, the Great black-backed gulls (Larus marinus) at Grutness, Shetland. It was fortunate that I've seen them just when I went out to test my new camera with its superzoom, because the distance was great enough for me to not be sure of the species only by looking at it with naked eye.

For one reason or another I've rarely seen these birds from close. Maybe where I've been they were too shy or some other reason, but for me is pretty rare experience to have a good look at one of them.
