Chips and chappies

 So, saw this wee chappie whilst eating our fish and chips. We watched him as he watched us, him on the bonnet of the car, us inside it, taunting him. He looked very young and curious, beautiful back feathers, very bright and shiny not used or sullied yet. He had lovely white spots on his tail feathers when they were all folded up. Still don't know the difference in my gulls yet, but felt amenable to him and threw him a few chips at the end. I know, its just encouraging them, but they're having a hell of a winter as are we all.

Thought I'd try and capture the sunset as the light was fading in this wee harbour.  A bit of a scribble but it was such a peaceful scene couldn't resist sitting there capturing it.
