Braced!

We were at the seafront today for a few minutes, it was so blustery and watching the birds was so funny. The gulls made the most of the wind and hovered on the gusts but the poor little Starlings flocked together, there was a long line of them stood in the shelter of a curb. Each new car brought shelter heat and warmth behind the tyres. This little fella looked so comical with legs wide apart and braced into the wind, his new plumage showing up so well in the sunlight.

Thank you for all your comments and favs all are much appreciated.
What a chunky little hunched up beauty! Lovely details. I especially like the claws on the concrete ridges.
