Red Billed Gull

Tarapunga

Larus novaehollandiae scopulinus

The commonest of our gulls …. there is seldom a beach without at least a couple. Sydney Cove on Ulva Island generally will have a dozen or more. They will follow fish boats, especially when inshore, but don’t seem to venture far from land.

Size 370 mm

Sails Ashore and Kowhai Lane are Solar Powered

Sails Ashore now produces 100 % of our electrical needs, and have cut our non renewable heating fuel usage to around 20% of pre solar.
Kowhai Lane is "Grid Tied" and exports excess electricity to the local grid.
Both have significantly reduced our carbon footprint
