He seems to have an aversion to Gulls -SmileGrinGrin A silly one for sure - and a big welcome back Barbara Smile

Amazing capture

The Gull probably! If you've ever seen how quickly they can empty a litter bin! Great capture. Sylvia

Must be one of the weirdest natural images I have seen (plenty, of course, after expensive manipulation), Barbara.
The seagull seems totally relaxed with her strange bed fellow and odd nesting basis.
Well spotted and captured.

And it anybody is going to find the unusual it's our Barbara!!!
The tyre doesn't look as if it'll last long up there.
Strange bed mates for those birds.
Very well seen.

Goodness, the gull doesn't look at all fazed. Well spotted.

A great nest for the seagull. The gargoyle can keep watch on her eggs while she goes fishing. A very good Silly Sunday image........Sandy

Amazing image - perhaps the gargoyle keeps the predators away - and the utilization of the old tyre is first class recycling! Great POV - brilliant capture.

Totally barmy, and wonderful. Delighted to make this 30. I'd kill to have taken it. The tyre as a nest would be funny enough, the squatter is just surreal, and the fact that the gull is watching him sulk is the icing on the cake.
Would the image stand a tighter crop I wonder? You need to keep the gulls circling, but could maybe get rid of a bit of the surroundings? That doesn't matter, this is gold.
