Seagull versus Crows
« on: March 19, 2015, 09:37:49 pm »
Sitting in war memorial park in Cardiff at lunch time a few weeks back I saw an amusing stand off between two crows and a seagull.  The gull had emerged from a hedge with a dead mouse in its beak.  The crows took interest and started double teaming the gull preventing it from taking off with beak nips on its wings  - the gull retaliated by dropping the mouse and aggressively chasing off the crows in turn - but they just came back as soon as it picked the mouse back up.  This went on for a while until the gull gulped the mouse down in one and VICTORY.  Crows lost interest and walked off.


Today.  Round 2.  Two crows and a gull again (same ones?  who knows) this time it's a crow with some big wobbly food stuff from a bin.  Gull gets interested chases crow into the air in full chase-mode.  Second crow follows, attacks it from above in defense of the other, full claw attack  :jurek: gull screams and gives up.  Second crow then gets its own wobbly food item from bin and flies off.  Crow VICTORY.


So far 1-1.  Who needs human sport - this is cool  ;D :thumbsup: 8)

Oddly enough I was just there again and I saw another amusing thing not involving crows this time.  I was rather intrigued to see - in a park containing various war memorials, flower beds etc - no ponds whatsoever - two ducks! waddling about and feeding.  At one point a seagull wandered around in the vicinity and as one of the ducks nodded its head forward for a tasty morsel in the general direction of the gull, the gull leaped back like a frightened rabbit.  That's not one for taking on the crows, oh no.  ;D


I really must remember to bring my phone along with me so I can video some of this stuff.


I wonder what on earth the ducks were doing there, I've never seen ducks that far away from water before but I suppose it's possible, they can after all fly.
