This time last year I took some pictures of a baby lesser black-backed gull (Larus fuscus graellsii) on a building site near our office in the city centre.
But I have been surprised this year that the gulls seem to have nested and bred there much earlier. There are currently two pairs of parents with three young gulls – but I never saw them as babies. I had been looking, too, for months. How sad that I wasn’t there to watch them growing up…
Anyway, they all seem to be doing well, although they are not as “cute” as the chicks were last year.
