Thanks Mike! appreciate it. I had never seen one sitting like this, on a nest? usually they are running in the sand.

That's a nice shot of some species of Gull - a juvenile, but I'm embarrassed to say that I seriously suck at id'ing Gulls and I live close to the Atlantic Ocean. Probably should put learning about Gulls on my "to-do-during-the-pandemic" list.

Yup, I said gull, and my machine decided otherwise. Thans for the catch.

You are correct. It is a wierd (not really) breed. I've seen others a lot more ugly, not the normal white. Thanks for looking.

Probably to rest, gulls are not typically the kind of birds to hide.
