Herring Gulls are fabulous to watch.
I’ve enjoyed taking photographs of them in urban areas. There’s something quite alien about their presence. Seeing them at Bristol Docks was a favourite experience of mine.
Here’s a sub-adult at my nearby industrial estate, eking out a living in the gaps we leave.
They exist on their wits, using a combination of ingenuity and threats of violence. They’re similar to people in many ways.
