Thank you, HJ, for this review. It is now added to my Christmas wish list. 🙂 I definitely need help with gulls!!
I’m in the same boat my dear. It is not easy because they change so much from year to year! Thanks Donna. 🙂
Well, I didn’t get this book for Christmas, HJ, but I have it now! I presently have got all these gulls around the creek, and I’m hearing there are a few rare visiting gulls locally. So far no rare sightings but this book is wonderful. And I’m ready to ID my gull photos much better now! Thank you again, HJ, for this book review. 😊
It was my pleasure! 🙂
Brilliant idea for a book. Gulls ought to be simple, yet in practice the possible variations are so complex. As so often, thanks for the heads-up for a really useful book – and I agree with Donna, it’s come at the perfect time of year…
I thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it RH! 🙂
And there is no one better than Pete Dunne to help us along this tricky road of gull identification. I’m happy to see this book, HJ, thank you for the heads-up.
Thank you Jet! 🙂
