STORM GULL Lesser black-backed gull, Larus fuscus Newhaven, East Sussex
Taken at Newhaven, as Storm Brian hit our shores in October 2017. A gale-force wind meant having to constantly hold on to my tripod, to prevent it being blown away, and I was forever having to wipe the sea spray from the lens. The gulls were clearly enjoying it, though, catching the wind and flying low over the waves before circling around and going again.
