    That first shot is absolutely mesmerizing because of the way the gulls have lined up, and the lines from the road and water.

    To go with sports metaphors, the gulls are lined up like triathlonists and ibises like swimmers.

    Now, what would be the parts of gull triathlon?

    I just wonder what lives in the drain that tastes so good and needs to make a dash for the other side in broad daylight.
    .
    The triatahlon: race to the beach side fish and chip shop, race to the drain overflow, race to the waste transfer station. It’s a hard life being a scavenger.

    Oh and I’ve discovered the nickname for the White Ibis in Australia, the “bin chicken”, for it’s habit of rooting through garbage bins.
