Feeding the birds.................................................................... ended in chaos!

We were down by the jetty at the weekend feeding the ducks.

 It wasn't long before the gulls began circling...

... they don't miss a trick...

...and they were soon diving in to grab what they could. 

much to the dismay of the ducks.
We did make sure the ducks got their fair share.

Anywhere you have gulls, there is the potential for chaos...

Uhoh! Gulls are smart and greedy and opportunistic. Beautiful flight shots!

Wonderful action captures Andrew, especially that first one - you've caught the wing and tail feather details beautifully! (and I just love the welcoming Robin in your header.) Happy weekend.

Fantastic shots of the gulls in action! They do know how to barge in on a meal. Love your shot of the single tree in the field with clouds.

You must have incredible patience to capture these amazing birds at just the right time. I like them A LOT. I especially love the last one.

Good post!

Talk about thieving magpies, gulls can be even worse although yours are very beautiful in their white with black plumage. Nice of you to make sure the ducks got a feed as well.

Absolutely brilliant photos! I can't choose a favorite, they're all wonderful! I can just imagine how dismayed the poor ducks were, and am glad you made sure they didn't get cheated out of their treats. :-)

It's amazing the commotion the gulls create when they know there are freebies being handed out. Hope the ducks got their share before the seagulls showed up.

Great action images Andrew
