Herring Gull and chick
No interactions present.
Oh, thank you both, I was so sure it was a Herring Gull. I'd better check photos out in a book etc to look for the red spot and then I'll know for the future.
If you think about it, the Kittiwake will have been much smaller and more slender than the brutish Herring Gull you also saw. The bill is more delicate, the legs are black (not pink) and are quite short in comparison.Just a very gentle and attractive gull in comparison to Herring.

Thanks Ophrys. I will try and remember that. I should have really known anyway due to the sound of the Kittiwake. Regards - Lynda
