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.
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…
As the weather improves we’ve had more opportunity to leave our balcony door open. All three of the cats appreciate being able to go on the balcony, but Lola likes it most of all. She will quite happily go and sit out there for as long as we let her. Whether she’s sunbathing, listening to…
Look at all that nature. The trees, the rocks, the grass and sunlight. You can ignore the building in the background… Just pretend it’s another tree or something… Darn man made structures interfering with my nature!
I think I want to take out a restraining order against the snow.
Sometimes bystanders can really make a photo. The pop of colour from this person’s coat, for example, really adds to the scene. Well, I think so in any case.
