Unpacking has taken much longer than I expected. But enough is enough, it is time for a break.
Sitting on the beach in the company of hundreds of seagulls is more than enough to compensate for the past few week’s hard work.
Not only is the size of the Herring Gulls impressive, but their greed for human food is also a plus for me, enabling me to get really close.
The Herring Gulls are sometimes are nuisance for local people here because they can be aggressive around humans, especially children. So they are not everyone’s favourite birds on the west coast of the UK. However, the Herring Gull is an endangered species because its number has declined by more than 50% in the last 25 years.
