One step too far?
The cries from a Herring Gull chick drew my attention this morning. The poor thing had walked off it's chimney nest site and slid down the roof. It attempted to walk back up the roof but inevitably gravity won. Thankfully it slid onto a projecting window below and not to the cats below. It does, however, remain in a very dodgy spot so I'm not too optimistic for this one.
While this was going on a Goldfinch was busy munching through some corn flowers and ignoring the niger seed that's been out for 4 months without attracting a single bird.
