The Challenge

The 6th in our new challenge layout catering for all aspects of nature for us nature lovers.

As you can see the title will start with the category which will make it easier for me when choosing what challenge to do next, I can see the challenges I have already run in this category.

For this challenge please add your images of GULLS.

Interesting Facts

> Apart from the kittiwakes, gulls are typically coastal or inland species, rarely venturing far out to sea.

> Gulls nest in large, densely packed noisy colonies.

> Certain species (e.g. the Herring Gull) have exhibited tool use behaviour, using pieces of bread as bait with which to catch goldfish, for example.

> Many species of gull have learned to coexist successfully with humans and have thrived in human habitats. Humans have made it easy for Gulls to scavenge for food on waste sites.

> Gulls have been observed preying on live whales, landing on the whale as it surfaces to peck out pieces of flesh.
