I see you through the window, landing on our neighbour’s roof. There is still a bit of down from when you were born with eyes wide open. I wish you a long and happy life my friend. Your parents will be back soon with some fish. Very soon, your muscles will be strong enough for you to spread those wings and find your own place by the sea.

It is unusual for me take photographs of seagull chicks, as I do no want to cause them or their parents any alarm. It is also unusual for me to take photographs through our window. On this occasion it seemed a great opportunity to capture images of our feathered neighbours without disturbing them. Eivor had watched me watch the chick with great interest and asked to go out to have a look from our garden. He has seen many seagulls nest on the roofs around us. He seems as much in awe as I am, about how fast they learn and grow.
