Two Black Backed Gulls

Two Black-backed Gulls

On my recent visit to the gannet colony at Muriwai I also caught this finely choreographed display of two black backed gulls (Larus dominicanus) screeching in unison at the edge of the nesting platform of the gannets. Looking up from Flat Rock.

    Mr. gannet,” I think it is time to head off to Aussie?”

    Mrs.Gannet,” No dear, let wait for a couple of weeks.”

    We love Muriwai.
