An uncommon sight in my (limited) experience; A young silver gull (seagull) picks through the beach sand looking for the food he should be eating. As I have noted before these gulls are the great Australian scavenger and are present across the Australian landscape in plague numbers because, both directly and indirectly, we feed them too much.

    For some reason my first comment wasn't saved. Strange. Anyway, great shot, I haven't see this type of bird before.

    This is just a juvenile - they lose all that mottly brown plumage as they mature and end up looking like the bird in this picture, which I imagine you have seen. :)

    Very interesting bird - I am not sure about the tail being cut off though - maybe a little more to the left
