Birds, and eggs, on the roof!

Seagulls are pretty common around here and can become quite aggressive in Spring-time when they are about to hatch their eggs. It doesn't help, either, when visitors sit in the harbour car park eating food and throwing out tidbits to the eager and apparently always hungry gulls.

However a gull which decided to build a nest on the top of a car at Inverness airport's long-stay car park had its hopes of parenthood dashed when the RSPB agreed to Inverness Airport's request to have the nest and the eggs destroyed "In line with our duty to minimize the risk of bird strikes at the airport, ...". Sad, but probably necessary.
