Adult Herring Gull Green YBDS collecting nesting material – 20170515

When driving through the harbour of IJmuiden, the Netherlands, early in the morning, dozens of Herring Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gulls can be seen along the side of the road gathering nesting material. Apparently they prefer to do this first thing in the morning because at later times in the day you can see far fewer gulls doing this.

Herring Gull Green YBDS, breeding on an island, also came ashore to collect some material. 15 May 2017.
