A Trip to the Beach

I spotted this young gull picking at a dead rat that had washed ashore and was very glad I hadn't gone in the water...

Beautiful picture!
Did she eat the rat?...

I am glad you caught the bird at the angle, concealing the rat!

Angela, super shot! I've never seen a bird who looks like this so assume, when you say young gull, that this is a young seagull. Obviously the feathers are so different. Isn't it beautiful.

But he looks so sweet. Definitely a young seagull. We get these now and again in the garden.

He/she pecked at the rat for a moment but then moved away to a rubbish bin..
I assumed from it's fluffy appearance that it was a young seagull but I'm not sure.
