This is the view across from our living room window - a nest of lesser black backed gulls, currently with two youngsters. They love walking round the chimney stack and occasionally stretch and flap their wings. The vegetation at the front is annoying for us as it stops us getting a consistently good view of what's going on but it's great for the birds as it offers really good shade to stop them overheating.
