This black-backed gull was lying dead, intact, in the field about 15 m from Curletts Road. I expect it was hit by a car and managed to get this far before collapsing.
One bird, well squashed.
Any ideas? The black and white feathers have got me puzzled. Grey warbler?
I think this is a female and that's its pouch in the second photo.
This is one of a pair of birds that's been hanging out these past few weeks at the corner of McDrurys and Leadleys Roads. The other bird kept within a few metres of its dead family member while I took this photograph. It seemed unsure about what to do.
