Artist's Description

I arrived at Mum’s house yesterday morning about 8.00 am, it was quite gloomy and as I glanced up at her roof (as I always do) there was a huge gull sitting there. I whipped out my camera and took off the cover , turned the screen around, got the gull in focus and was just about to press the button when it took off. ……….I sighed and put my camera back in the case after closing the screen up and putting the cover back on. I got out the car and glanced up again and this time on her neighbours tv aerial was the heron, I stood and watched for a while and smiled as he spotted a cat below and followed it with his eyes as it slunk away.

Then a magpie landed on the roof and started to complain to the heron I watched with amusement as it scolded the heron for stealing it’s perch, then another 2 magpies arrived and they began to fly up at the heron and dive bomb it. At this point I took my camera out and took a few shots………then I changed to video and filmed the battle of wits between them………who won? Look here and find out…….

They are a little shaky, but it was difficult holding the camera up for a while….LOL
