This Black-headed Gull Lams ridibundus (plate 125, opposite) was photographed in Suffolk in November 1977 by Terry Bond, who suggested that the bird is saying: 'You wouldn't believe how many people identify me as a Laughing Gull!' Can you think of an equally apt, humorous caption to accompany this photograph? A small prize will be sent to the winner. Send your suggestions to If the caption fits, Fountains, Park Lane, Blunham, Bedford.
