I walk or cycle to work in the centre most days and have been trying to notice the birds on my way in. I’ve managed to get photos of two of them. First is this cormorant drying its wings on the docks. There are cormorants everywhere down the docks, they add a little taste of the exotic when they’re sitting with their wings out like this.
The other one is the ubiquitous herring gull (at least I think it is) – this one still a juvenile, just getting its adult plumage. Apparently Bristol has the highest population of herring gulls in the country. We’re near the coast, but not that near! They live on the colossal amount of food rubbish scattered around the city.
