Birds!!
Jul 13, 2011

Sea birds have been dying in droves all over NZ in this latest winter storm, the wind has being blowing too strong and for too long in one direction for them to be able to cope. The sea being so rough that many of them can not feed properly.

One that seems to be coping quite well though, is the black backed gull or 'Karoro' as it is known locally.

They have moved inshore and seem to effortlessly glide in the strongest of wind, quite mesmerising watching them soar with their 1.5 metre wingspan.

I know it is a bit cliché to take pics of seagulls but I couldn't help myself!

Pics are in the next post.
