Feeding the birds

Black headed gulls



On Monday Sally and I had to go to Chatham. Once business was finished we decided to go birdwatching on the “Waterfront” while waiting for the 136 bus.

There were very few birds around when we arrived but this soon changed when a young mother came along and started to feed the birds on the Medway. We were surrounded by black – headed gulls.

They were flying so close that their wings were almost brushing my face. Many of them just sat a metre away which allowed Sally to get some great photographs. Soon the feral pigeons arrived and down below on the shore were about 20 mute swan with many many more black – headed gulls


Although her little lad and I had rather different ideas about “birding” it didn’t seem to make much difference – we both had fun!
