The Big Yawn

By SUE118
I stay in the same hotel every year when I go to Jersey and try and get the same room. Outside the bathroom window there is always a baby seagull. The hotel have done their best to get numbers down by erecting a plastic owl that flaps its wings when it is windy to scare the seagulls. This hasn't worked with this family and I really enjoy having it there for my weeks stay. There is always a parent keeping an eye on their young. I never realized how big a seagull's mouth is.
Many thanks to Peter for his award yesterday and for your comments and votes.
Keep cool and safe.

Great story and image. What a huge mouth they have! Preparation for the fish n chips when larger, perhaps? And the owl, sounds very amusing 😀
