Avian photo round-up

A quick round-up of photographs from this week in the quad ...

The newly-emerged gull chicks on the roof opposite our office. Perhaps unsurprisingly given their precarious position, and unlike the duck chicks, these guys seem to test out their wings from an early age.

The gulls again, this time with mum/dad.

The sole surviving chick from the most recent brood. While the earlier broods spent much of their time following their mothers around, this chick instead drags its mother around the quad.

Mother and chick sunning themselves.

A swimming lesson.

The two survivors from the original brood enjoying their water trough.
