A Flock of Seagulls!

While walking by the estuary near Blackrock on Tuesday evening, we saw hundreds of seagulls resting on the mud at the edge of the water.    Gulls like to feed in flocks, so they were probably having a light supper on all the goodness left behind by the tide.    As the tide was out, we couldn’t get too close to them, so they were oblivious to the flash of the camera, and kept feeding and resting there.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Community

We are a community, we fly, we swoop, we flutter, we glide, through the traffic and over the heads of the people walking around the square, almost touching but not quite. we pick up the scraps, we spot them with our eagle eyes…and some people even come especially to feed us, bringing us old scraps of bread and seeds in their shopping bags.


Even if the humans don’t feed us, they throw away their fast food cartons and rubbish, still with some food left inside, and we are happy and full by the end of the day. We are city birds, we perch on window ledges and roofs, unlike our cousins who like to live by the sea and perch on clifftops.   But no matter where we are, we stick together and look out for each other, just like a good community.
