Mum needed to go food shopping today, so a trip to Gosport was on the cards. That meant I was able to get to the Cockle Ponds where Waldo has taken up residence for his 13th (or so) year.
I am of course talking about the ring-billed gull that seems to spend every winter in the same park in Gosport. I wonder why? Maybe it’s the appeal of being fed by visitors, or the change of scene.
I stayed watching for a while. Waldo was mostly laid back, not doing much like the other gulls until food arrived and then once peaceful scene would become a squabble. “That’s my bread!”, “No, mine!”
Not wanting to be left out, the mute swans were desperate for some attention too…
