Vicious is the only word to describe this mornings behaviour from one of a pair of very territorial Herring Gull which have been around for a few days. The presence of any other large gull wouldn't be tolerated as this Lesser Black-backed Gull found to its cost.
Love the way the Coot's have gathered around, they love a good scrap themselves.
Other birds around Castle Lake this foggy morning included the following;
11 Shelduck, 96 Wigeon, 3 Shoveler, 3 Pochard, 4 GC Grebe, Cormorant, Sparrowhawk, Peregrine through east, Dunlin, 4 Snipe, Little Owl, Green Woodpecker very vocal, Meadow Pipit displaying, Corn Bunting singing.
