Nice shots, thanks for sharing. The 1st is a black-headed gull (there's no such thing as a seagull!!) 2nd and 3rd are coots. Normally the shots should show the bird flying or looking into the frame but even though these break 'the rules' they are very good as they show the path the birds have taken which adds to the composition IMO. Good exposure on the black and whites on the coot shots.

OMG, yes you are right about 'the seagull' I should have said black headed gull. To think i and others always have used the word seagull and never thought twice about it.. Thank you for your comments it is greatly appreciated.

Don't be embarrassed, we're a friendly bunch here and always welcome new members. To err is human
As to the seagull, ask any member and they will tell you that I get on my soap box when I see it used, to my own embarrassment

Hi Pepper Welcome here, no embarrassment needed, but as soon has I read Seagull I thought oooops that will get Kevin going

I agree with kevin's tight cropping comments, but a great start and I hope we see more from you.

Very nice, welcome!
I agree with Kevin and John about framing, but these are very nice. I especially like #1 with that crisply focused splash that really adds to the image.
Nice job, looking forward to seeing more.
