Little Egret v Black headed Gulls

This little egret was out for a quiet Sunday morning spot of fishing when the local hoodlums in the shape of three black headed gulls decided to spoil his day.

At first he was ignoring them carrying on trying to feed and ducking out of the way when they got too close.

But eventually he’d decided enough was enough and started to stick up for himself.

As with all bully’s they eventually back down and he let them know who was in charge before wandering off and carried on looking for a spot of lunch.

    Wonderful series!

  3. Gulls are dreadful bullies!! Great captures and I love that victorious stance of the egret at the end 😀

      They certainly are straight after hassling the egret they started on a marsh harrier!
