Urban Seagulls, Vol. 1: The Seagulls of Citylink Swamp
Out trekking along Moonee Ponds Creek and Railway Canal, I came across some seagulls taking a drink in their natural urban environment, the swamplands shadowed by the Citylink bridge. I admired them for awhile, being the seagull fan that I am (really) and this inspired me to start a new, probably fairly sporadic, series called Urban Seagulls.
You would never expect that there would be seagulls around the corner.
But… lo and behold… seagulls.
Frolicking in the swamplands next to Citylink.
Drinking that tasty-looking water right up.
After my seagull friends left, I loitered around for a while feeling lonely.
It’s a common myth that seagulls only hang out at beaches. In the coming weeks, months and maybe even years I will be documenting the gulls who prefer the hustle and bustle of the urban sprawl to the relaxing beaches; who would rather burn their feet on hot cement than on hot sand. Keep an eye out while you’re eating your hangover Maccas in a park tomorrow after your new year’s eve party benders, the urban seagulls will be out in force – and they will be hungry!
Happy new year and all that jazz.
