|Herring Gulls Keeping Watch From a Nearby Building (free advertising)|
I have also made a return visit to the old British Shoe works in Leicester this week and there is a great deal of activity there, as some of the chicks are quite mature now. I saw one fly along the road about a metre above the tarmac. It managed to clear the wall and disappeared into the works.
I am concerned that the demolition of the site will start before all the gulls fledge, as I've been told the contractors arrive next week. I'll keep my eye on things and see how it goes.
The photo below is of a young Herring Gull. I know this because I saw its parents feed it.
