Update on the chick

31st May 2012, Thursday

The Black-headed Gull chick is now three weeks old, doing well, and of course always ready to hassle the adults for a meal.  The youngster is gradually losing the fluffy look as the main flight feathers are coming through, this time next week all being well it should be ready for lift off. Look at the second picture below to see the chick with its two siblings on the 11th of this month.
