Mealtime for the Black-headed Gulls
Mealtime for the Black-headed Gulls
There were several hundred gulls following the tractor at Little Tring looking for grubs in the freshly turned soil.
At this time of year the majority of these gulls do not have black heads - but if you zoom in you will see that some of them already do.
The Black-headed Gull may have started by living by the sea but as a result of man's activities has firmly moved inland, and a colony of perhaps 10,000 sometimes roosts overnight on the water of the nearby Wilstone Reservoir.
