12th September 2007 - Leggy the Herring Gull
This shot was taken on 12th September 2007 and shows the early moments of take off into the air. She is two months away from completing moult to 5th-winter, and the old outermost primary feather on each wing is yet to shed, whilst the inner ones are either fully grown or still growing.
