Definitely not an easy day…
As well as the screech of gulls (which seems like a very appropriate collective noun) that we encountered the other day there were quite a few other birds out and about. The one pictured being one of them. I suspected at the time that they were foraging, either for nest building materials or for food.
This morning we again walked past the area where there were so many seagulls yesterday. And there were quite a bunch of them today too. Not quite as many, but still several. I’m not quite sure what is suddenly so appealing about that patch of grass that they’ve all decided to flock around there.
What’s in a name?
The weather this morning was rather unpleasant. Wind and rain. Rain that turned to snow, then sleet, back to snow, a bit more rain, some hail, sleet, more snow…
Baby cuddles are the absolute best.
The books I ordered arrived today! They should keep me busy for a little while. It’s perhaps not easy to tell from the picture, but that one on the bottom is rather large!
