Summer is here (storm clouds threatened for tomorrow, but I can live with that). Anyway, today I took some proper time to watch the local youngsters… house martins and herring gulls.
These are a couple of the young martins, snug in their nest. There are several of these under the eaves of the row of cottages at Falmer.
The real local characters though are the young herring gulls. There are small clutches all over the roofs at work, but these two are in my favourite spot (by the car park), and are just hitting that stage where they look faintly absurd!
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens.
