Romantic meal for two, anyone?

Now, I did say that our trip to Norfolk was to celebrate a bit of a milestone for one of our number. So what would be finer than a romantic meal for two, bathed in late afternoon sun, sitting by the water's edge, billing and cooing like lovestruck doves?

Doves? Well, how about Black-headed Gulls?

There we were, sat in a hide at RSPB Strumpshaw, when all of a sudden, a pair of gulls started acting strangely. At first we assumed that it was an adult feeding a well grown chick, but we soon realised that, no, it was probably a male and female indulging in a bit of culinary courtship.

Only read on if you've a strong stomach...

Her: "How much do you love me?"

Him: "More than mere words can convey."

Her: "Well, give us a tasty morsel, then."

Him: "Yaaaaarrrrgggghhh!"

Her: "Thanks, my dear!"
