Common Gulls at Glenbuchat

Early this morning I accompanied our friend Annie for a second time to help survey the Waders at Glenbuchat. Although there were plenty of Lapwing and Oystercatcher chicks, their parents were keeping them well away from any potential danger which invariably meant they were too far away to attempt a photograph as we were conducting the survey. A couple of the fields within the survey area also have quite sizeable numbers of breeding Common Gulls. As we approached these fields some of the adults took to the air to provide to provide a noisy warning to stay away from their young.
