Wordless Wednesday


 Getxo coastline, Near Bilbao Spain.


Seagull scarer!


This photo is so blurry that I am embarrassed to publish it, but it is to give an idea of how they keep the gulls off the ships. He just scares them but doesn't actually catch them.


I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.

So that's a real bird of prey? Wow! Bet it works to scare anything away.

Seagulls are pests and they make a terrible mess too. Keeping them away from some places is a good idea.

Lovely spaces and I like that person with the bird on the hand.
Never been in Spain. Probably in the next life...
Happy WW and a fabulous week!!
I have an idea for the next time: try to introduce your blog starting with http instead of https. I had a situation of this kind when they modified the platform.
And we see…

What an impressive coastline!!! Those seagulls can really be quite bold. They always annoyed our peeps when they would go to the beach.

That has to be one well trained hawk, given that they are predator birds. Interesting!

What a fascinating way to keep seagulls away! There are some places i know that could use the technique.

Beautiful place. Great idea to use a predator bird to scare away the gulls.

Fascinating! Almost looks like the White Cliffs of Dover....and I think using a predator to keep the gulls at bay is brilliant.

hugs, Pam

The natural ways are the best ways, and far quieter and safer. Lovely to see.
