Here I have photographed some seagulls when I was out fishing last month in Northern Norway. There is always some seagulls around your boat when you are out on the sea, just waiting for you to throw them some goodies. On this trip we caught a lot of fish so we had to do some gutting and these seagulls love fish guts. After a while more and more seagulls arrive at the scene and it becomes quite crowded around the boat as you can see in the pictures.
There were mostly European Herring Gulls (Larus argentatus) around the boat, but also some larger Great Black-backed gulls (Larus marinus).
The seagulls come really close to the boat and some even took guts from my hand.

Here is another picture from the feeding frenzy.
