Herring Gull - mouth full of food

This huge Herring Gull was another visitor yesterday. As you can see, after he had been there was not a lot left for everyone else. 🙂

Strutting Black Headed Gull

It’s been a while since I have had time to sit down and photograph the birds in our garden. Today I put a bit of Bacon fat out and a couple of gulls visited. It is amazing that they totally ignore bread, but the minute I put fat out there, they appear! 🙂

Starling ‘sifting’ the seed

Starling

Starlings have a habit of sifting the seed by putting their closed beak into the seed and then opening their beak with a snap to move the seed around.
