A Flock of Seagulls

Full of cold today with a banging head and a sore throat…so took off into a good strong breeze and walked down the Suffolk coast from Stutton to Lower Holbrook…kill or cure! I’m not a birder and never know what I’m looking at (and don’t really have the kit, skill or application to photograph it particularly well). These may be Grey Plovers, but are probably seagulls! I saw a heron in flight as well.

Apropos of nothing really, other than the fact that I rarely need an excuse for this sort of thing – here’s a video of The Stranglers performing “Toiler on The Sea from the Black and White album. This is the song “The Flock of Seagulls” took their name from apparently. This version performed at Alexander Palace August 11th 1990. Hugh Cornwell’s last gig with The Stranglers.
