GULLS & TERNS OF THE WORLD- Click on the photo to see an enlarged image
Many years ago, when I first started birding abroad, I set myself a target to see all the gull species in the world, primarily as a focus in deciding where to travel. This is because they are one of only a few bird families which breed on every continent. I achieved my aim several years ago, although there are one or two which I haven't managed a decent photograph of, such as Armenian Gull; three of the most attractive gulls I've only seen as vagrants to Britain, namely Ivory, Ross's and Sabine's. Obviously we've co-incidentally seen most terns as well, so I've included these.
I am trying to photograph every species of wildfowl in the world, as in our travels to see seabirds and waders I found we were coming across many species.
