Herring chicks begging for food

The activity in the herring gull nest is fascinating to watch.
I noticed one of the adults returning to the nest and one of the chicks starts to beg for food by tapping at the orange spot on the herring gulls beak. This is how the chicks ask for food.

It was difficult to see if the adult had food for the chick or not.
