Nice photo, but not of a Black-legged Kittiwake. This is a photo of the Great Black-backed Gull, Larus marinus, Grote Mantelmeeuw. (The Lesser Black-backed Gull has yellow feet).
A bit overexposed on the head, but that's normal in this sunshine. Good sharpness.
We captured this Black-legged Kittiwake.Nice sharp picture with natural colour.It was not easy to capture in such bright light.Well done.
Thanks for sharing,
