Black Headed Gulls feeding on insects

Its normal at this time of year to see Black Headed Gulls to feed off insects beside the road
These fed beside the road down at Grutness

There has been an abundance of little black flies, especially around Sumburgh where thousands have invaded houses

The Gulls often landed on the vegetation to capture the insects

Black Headed gulls also feed on earthworms , Aquatic invertebrates, berries and fish

Gt BB always a cause for concern for most birds and sometime they combine to drive the bird off
