A couple of weeks ago GB and I were driving the Braighe when we spotted some birds. He thought they were divers, I thought they were Long-tailed Ducks. It matters not what they were (or even if we were looking at the same birds) what was amusing was he said the one he saw had a long neck. I said the one I saw had a short neck. I was reminded of this when I watched a Herring Gull the other day. Here are two photos of the same gull:-
So does the Herring Gull have a long neck or a short neck??
