The overall number of European herring gulls has seen a slight drop in recent times, possibly due to competition and fish population declines. They have however proved capable of surviving in urban areas and can be commonly seen in towns and cities acting as scavengers. Their adaptable nature stems from an omnivorous eating habit, with rubbish compromising up to half of an individuals diet. Alongside black-headed gulls, they are the most commonly found seagulls in urban environments within the UK. I spotted this pair of juvenile herring gulls during a trip to my local park. A good piece of timing allowed me to capture this image of one of the gulls shrieking a loud call. I liked how it looks as though the bird on the left is shouting at the bird on the right - who clearly is not interested in having a conversation. The back-lit lighting effect helps to add to a fair;y simple composition but this image was all about capturing an interesting aspect of animal behaviour. #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #canonphotography #birdsofinstagram #photo #nature #wildlife #canon #animal #birds #bird #seagull #gull #herringgull #lake #sun #sunlight #outdoors #water #wanderlust #splendid_animals #bb_of_ig #nature_perfection #wildlife_perfection #kings_birds #animalelite #global4nature #bird_brilliance #igscwildlife
