Some Gulls Will

Eat all kind of horrible things out of the mud from the exposed bed of the Thames at low tide.

We spotted two species of gull from London’s South Bank on Saturday. I was rather pleased with this picture I took of a juvenile herring gull at the extreme range of my camera lens. curiously there were no adult herring gulls to be seen, just the kids hanging out in the hope of scoring the odd sandwich crust.

The herring gulls were seriously outnumbered by the black headed gulls.

Who are still in their winter plumage so the only trace of the distinctive brown head is the spot behind the eye. The only other birds to be seen down by the river were London’s ever-present feral pigeons and a few carrion crows. We left them to whatever disgusting things they were eating and went to Wahaca.
