That's When the Fight Started

My Precioussssssssss....

We were photographing Herring and Great Black-backed Gulls this afternoon when a fracas broke out.

Begone Fowl Orcs

Emotions were high and tempers higher.

It burns us it burns us... ensued.

GBBG: That's just disgusting
HEGU: Nothing is disgusting you fool, we're gulls!

They were fighting over a doughnut, which is understandable. 

What was concerning was that the pastry was liberally coated with the valuable bovine byproduct, which had been spread equally liberally over the cornfield where the creatures were lounging and dining. Only gulls would fight over that.

Don't look at me...I was just down here in the river preening my feathers
