#seagullbuttscarer  
A trip to the coast to visit my wife's sister should have yielded a few opportunities for some shots for the theme that isn't #seagullbuttsaturday  - However a stroll along the prom yielded no opportunities whatsoever but then my wife said, "bird of prey!"( I must admit my first thought was she'd been hitting the gin a trifle early). Turns out a couple of the hoteliers have combined to pay a local falconer to fly his Harris Hawk as a gull deterrent.....
A real gull world WMD (Wingspan of Much Distraction)

Maybe of passing interest to the #gulluminati

After a break of a few days I'm back with my wife's No.7 of her favourite twenty Trinidad & Tobago Birds.
A Southern Lapwing showing the ladies what he has to offer :-))

At No.8 in my wife's Top Twenty from T&T is the same bird as yesterday. For obvious reasons it wouldn't have made any of my lists........... it's a "nearly" shot :-(

This Juvenile Glossy Ibis we encountered early one morning on Tobago was a huge surprise to us (but not to our guide) - they are classified as "accidental" on Tobago

This is No.5 in my wifes Top Twenty favourite bird shots from Trinidad and Tobago. I liked this bird, as much as anything, because it was completely "natural" in that there were no feeders anywhere remotely close to attract hummers in.
