        • This year's Seagull and Kittiwake chicks are growing up, but not ready to fly yet. Some Kittiwakes are nesting on top of our block of flats and making a lot of noise during the mating and nesting season.

          Last week one of the chicks was trying to fly a little too early (no feathers yet) and fell from the roof to the parking lot, some seven stories below, and survived.
          I was expecting the parents to abandon the wayward chick and concentrate on whatever other chicks still in the nest. But no, the chick is still being fed while walking around on the parking lot, or hiding under cars. (and have somehow avoided being run over, so far):




          The parent birds are getting aggressive and "dive bombing" anybody that gets near to where the chick is hiding. I was trying to get a video of their flying skills when the Janitor was cutting the grass the other day, with music on his ears and totally oblivious of the two birds making mock attack on him repeatedly. Unfortunately they were flying too fast to get a good video of their action.

          • Other Kittiwakes are nesting on the roof of the bus depot next door. They even have their own private "bath tub" in some puddles of rain water collecting on the roof that never gets to dry out between rain showers in our variety of summer here on the north west coast of Norway:

            • "Our" Chick didn't survive, (I don't know what happened, maybe a car or a cat got it, but it has not been seen for several days) but here is one of this year's crop that did.
