|Juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull, Leicester|
It can be difficult to positively ID some of these chicks, because you can see both species of gull standing close to them and it isn't always obvious who the parents are.
In the video below two immature Herring Gulls are standing close to the chick and just prior to that and adult HG was standing next to it, but I think it becomes clear that it is a LBBG. Just watch what its mother does to it.
Lets hope they all fledge mate??ReplyDelete
