Juvenile European Herring Gull (Larus argentatus) I had stopped off to take a few photos, while on a cycle along the coastal walk which runs underneath the high white cliffs of Brighton, when this juvenile Herring Gull. calling loudly for food, walked right up to me, no more than two feet away at one point.<br />
<br />
Back at base, I discovered yet again, that a seemingly familiar sight turns out to be far more remarkable than I had appreciated in full.<br />

I&#039;ve given some detail here.  Turn up the volume and you&#039;ll hear it calling over the sound of the wind: <section class="video"><iframe width="448" height="282" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ga6wdyww-PQ?hd=1&autoplay=0&rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></section> European herring gull,Fall,Geotagged,Larus argentatus,United Kingdom Click/tap to enlarge
