I paid a visit to the Kittiwake colony on Mumbles Pier on Sunday. No sign of any hatchlings yet, but plenty of birds on eggs. A few pictures from the visit:

Here's a short video of some squabbling in the colony:


  1. Wow, the sunset is quite nice. It looks like a watercolors with lovely soft colors that warm it up. The seagulls are amazingly in their graceful flying stages!

  2. I adore the first image here and not many people do but I love seagulls. Have a collection of them started.
