I often see gulls flying around the village but rarely see one land. This Common Gull rested for a while on top of the telegraph pole just past the end of my garden. Gulls often seem to stand on one leg but I had a feeling by the way this one was standing it may have injured its left leg.
If I lean over the kitchen work surface I can just see the pond waterfall. The other day a Blackbird was having a good old wash and brush up.
Still on the subject of Blackbirds - they spend a lot of their time looking under every stone and searching every crevice to find food. It ends up with moss and gravel being thrown all over the garden.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.
