Urban herring gulls nesting
I have been watching again with great interest, they really are fascinating birds and a great opportunity to witness bird behaviour.
While they can cause a nuisance - it is human activity that the gulls have adapted to. Firstly UK herring gulls numbers have decreased in the wild due to human activity and providing (even if unintentionally) our waste and uneaten food for gulls to scavenge on. In the marine environment the gulls part scavenging nature is an important role.
