Home alone.....!


I can't believe more than a year has gone by since I posted images like this one above, and it still makes me as nervous as it did then to see these little seagull chicks snuggled into the tops of the mooring posts in the harbour at Sorrento Quay. It's especially nerve-wracking when mum flies off in search of food, but I noticed today that when they were alone if they stood up and moved about either mum or dad (or it could have just been a concerned neighbor) swooped in to keep them in line, phew! Hopefully your Friday will be a little less tense, take care and stay safe.....

  1. For all the seagulls we get here - lots, in facy maybe too many :) - I have never seen a chick, and I'm surprised they're nesting so close to humanity. Nicely caught.

  3. I do miss living where I did that was so close to the Sound, but we do have LOTS of seagulls, don't see the young ones, just their parents searching for food! I do love to watch them! They occasionally sit on the ledge outside the window here in my office and give me that questioning look -- "where's the food????". Great shots for the day! Have a great weekend, Grace!!

  5. What do they say...it takes a village; in this case it takes a flock of gulls to watch over the little ones.

  8. Well spotted! I've never really seen chicks - parents do a good job of hiding them.

  11. Adorable. I would be nervous as well. A wind or a storm could easily get them blown away. Very cute little ones. Enjoy your weekend.

  19. Well, I was going to make a humorous comment about them having the good sense not to step off the edge of their perch...

    I'll just ditto what Cloudia said, all true!
