An American in Gosport

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!”

Food time!

Food time!

Not wanting to be left out, the mute swans were desperate for some attention too…

  1. You so need to work out how to get the grid on your camera so that you can level up the horizon! I do too but my excuse is that I don’t take so many photos with such an obvious natural horizontal in them.
