Seagulls can be pesky birds no matter where you are in the world.
They are scavengers for picnic food and will steel food off the plate in a wink.
BUT on our reasent visit to Penguin island just of the coast at Shoalwater Bay,
my heart warmed to these fuffy darlings. They will of course grow very quickly into
the pesky picnic spoiler. I wanted to add a shadow for the theme this moning which
is in V1, the other three are just variants.
We are asked along our beaches not to feed the gulls and on the island they have special tubs of food.
To help rear the chicks I presume.
Hope you like this set…..
Many thanks to all who sent in c/cs, again most apprecianted……
Have a great weekend……..

Because Penguin Island is a nature reserve and the seagulls and pelican were nesting.
They were everywhere really, these eggs were on the edge of the path so I just zoomed in.
I was told off a couple of times with a lot of cawing from the birds. We were told that these silly birds
will even lay them on the edge of a cliff. They are a funny shape and do not roll easily though.
We didn’t get a chance to photo close ups of the pelicans as there nesting spots were high up and
fenced off...Grin

Yes, you're right - about 3 or 4 years back whilst I was in Staithes here in Yorkshire, I was having lunch at the Cod & Lobster pub by the harbour, and being such a warm, sunny day, sat outside. Despite being warned of the seagulls by the lady serving at the bar indoors and keeping a watchful eye on the gulls, within a couple of minutes one swooped down and snaffled a quarter of my tuna sandwich off my plate! Sad I never even heard it swoop down, just felt it brush past my arm. It even stood smirking at me a few yards away before scoffing it! I wouldn't have minded so much if it had gone for the side salad...
Good set here, Jocelia...and the fluffy young 'uns even look quite cute...Wink
