It’s a sad fact that there can’t be swell every single day. Which is why the team at Surfability UK have decided to turn our attention (well at least some of it) to learning about the beautiful birds that inhabit our coastline. Understanding and caring for our avian allies, is an important part of enjoying, protecting and respecting our seas.
Part 1 Spring
The March Equinox has passed. We’ve gleefully waved goodbye to winter (so vigorously in some cases that our gloves may have flown off and hit it on it’s way out!) and now we’re ready to welcome Spring!
So, the first bird that we’ve decided to spot this Easter weekend, is the Black-headed Gull. (Or the Curiously-named Gull as we’ve been referring to it since we discovered that it’s head is only dark in summer! But I digress…)
With over 2.2 million of them squawking around the UK, not least in our coastal towns, we felt confident we couldn’t fail to spot one of these birds!
Famous for their screeching quarrels and scandalous chip stealing swoops, we’ve decided that everyone should be able to take a snap of a sea gull this week!
So break out your phones, your cameras or even your easel and oils if you feel inclined, and join us in celebrating these great British birds.

And once you’ve spotted and snapped a few gulls, visit us on the Surfability Facebook and Instagram pages where we’ll be posting this weeks gull pictures!
