Masters of Flight

On the 9th April 2019

They are masters of flight. They are able to change direction quickly, whilst gliding with the wind. They are also very friendly and curious, yet at the same time, a little shy.

I made the most of the Easter holidays and used the time to spend some time with one of my favourites, the Tyne Kittiwakes. Many are still showing off their flight skills, gliding past me, whilst at the same time saying hello with their familar calls.
