First flaps

Flying is hard! This young gull spent a few days hopping and flapping before finally getting out of the nest, probably by accident. Apparently it’s pretty common for them to fall out and finish growing up on the ground.

All three of the babies are now hanging around in the Moonies parking area, flying a little better each day, and eating a proper seagull diet of whatever their parents bring and what people feed them.
