Two herring gull chicks

I have been keeping an eye on the nesting herring gulls and I got a glimpse today of two chicks

The nest is on the chimney of a house that backs onto ours. I only spotted one at first and it was a while before I manged to spot the second chick

The parents seem to be doing a good job of sharing the duties of looking after the young. One of the adults will return and relive the one guarding the chicks and later on will swap over again.
