The seagulls are nesting...

...on top of the chimney of the house opposite.

There are two chicks that I can see, both being fed at frequent intervals by their parents.

For those interested in the technical details they are the ubiquitous Herring gulls, Larus argentatus.

Anyone walking along the street needs to watch out, as gulls can be very protective of their chicks - as I found out to my cost last year.

In London we now call them gulls since most of the little blighters haven't ever seen the sea. The trouble is they still continue to fish for herring in the High Street.

Lovely to see them doing so well.
