This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Gulls in a fight

Some weekends, when the fishing has been good the harbor bursts with activities. Sports fishers bring home their catch and often do the cleaning on board. The gulls smell an easy meal and lie in wait.
Then, when the offal gets chucked over the side:

The big Herring Gulls, セグロカモメ have to fight for a piece. One other gull, the Black-headed Gull, ユリカモメ has a keen eye on the action

See that brave little bird on the right!

The fighting is fierce

But this is only for the strongest

Herring Gull, セグロカモメ and Black-headed Gull, ユリカモメ

However, daring closer to the boats he (or she) managed to get some too.
