There have been some rumours from a 'group' on one of the social networking sites that the gulls in Aberdeen are big and scary. Having been there at the weekend I'm happy to report the the roof top nesting gulls are of average size and are no scarier than those in St. Ives. More interesting are the Oystercatchers nesting in Old Aberdeen on flat roofs around the university campus builings and halls of residence. Small groups of piping birds were bombing around, a few were gorging on leather jackets in the park, and one nest was found, just visible on a low building. Thanks to Lisa for the gen.
