Recently, I’ve been noticing the gull riding higher on her nest…almost as though she had something more substantial than eggs, under her wings.
AND SHE DID!
Yep! The minigulls are de-egged, and ambulatory. This afternoon, just before lunch, a pair of them tottered out of the nest, and poked their beaks round the corner. I didn’t get a very good look, or a very long one — Mr. and Mrs. Gull lost no time in herding them back to the nest — but there’s no doubt about it: those are two very small, very spotty gulls. I do hope they wander over this way, once they’re a bit bigger. I’d love a better look.
For now, though, it’s back to work with me; awfully busy, this week.
Congratulations, gulls; spy on you later. ;-)
