info

The Black-baked Gull is much bigger than Red-billed Gull and Black-billed Gull. Its weight comes to 1.4 kilogram with a wingspan of less than 1.5 meters. It was quite common but I could not come closer as it was more timid than others photographed seagulls. Apart from Australia and New Zealand, where I had the pleasure to take those photos, it also occurs in Africa and South America.

The kelp gull was photographed in Argentina and Antarctica. The most interesting pictures were taken in Antarctica, what makes them more attractive, a couple of nests with young were placed close to the penguin beach. From a distance of several meters I could take photos without any problems. Sound recordings were also made there in Antarctica. A kelp gull was the only one seagull that occurred in Antarctica. Apart from penguins, kelp gulls and skuas, and occasionally Antarctic terns, it was difficult to encounter other birds. Petrels, fulmars and albatrosses preferred stormy open waters to the secluded bay.
