    I’m with the gull! I love Cornish Pasties.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      You wouldn’t dare eat one in the open around here though Pete.

    Definitely would not want a gull in my pasty, but a fine portrait.

    Hmmm…not my favourite creature….

    1. Heyjude says:

      No indeed. Greedy creatures.

    Love the headline; and it’s a great shot.

      There are so many of them, but this guy was just in the perfect place with the perfect background, so I had to take his picture.

  5. And the Australian equivalent would be stealing chips. πŸ™‚ They are speedy and smart birds.

    1. Heyjude says:

      These steal chips, ice-cream and even sausage rolls from the hand of a baby!

        1. Heyjude says:

          It didn’t hurt him, but gave him and us quite a shock. Cheeky bird!

    So is it a long or short a in pastie? Trying to get up to speed with my pronunciation.

    1. Heyjude says:

      As in past not paste. So short. I think. Of course it might be like pastry in which case it is long and I have been pronouncing it incorrectly πŸ˜€

      1. susurrus says:

        I vote for short too!

      2. Elizabeth says:

        You would know! Thanks.

  7. You can see the breeze in her /his wing feathers. I thought it was you doing food shopping from the title!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It was what we call ‘fresh’. I try to resist pasties – they go straight to my middle and my middle is wide enough!

  8. susurrus says:

    I love pasties, potato pies and cherry pies and couldn’t guarantee to resist any of these if they were in front of me and offered. Not that I’d grab one out of someone’s hand like the gull, need I say!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I believe you Susan… πŸ˜‰

  9. restlessjo says:

    I’m not keen on them either but it’s a good shot (and you grabbed Mick’s attention immediately πŸ™‚ )

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah, sorry Mick. No pasties…

    He/she certainly has its beady eye on something
