  • Fairhaven Garden Black Headed Gull Colony Enjoys Nesting on Rafts

    The black headed gull colony at Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is having a successful breeding season nesting on wooden rafts on the garden's private broad.

    Trevor 'Tabs' Taberham volunteer wildlife warden explains: “The wooden rafts have been moored on the broad by the gardening team and have proved very popular with the black headed gulls. Some of the gulls have nested on the top of wooden posts that have cavities in the top, a precarious position to be in, as one false step and the chick falls into the water.

    Fortunately the wooden rafts are fitted with floating gangplanks which the chicks happily use to get back onto the rafts and luckily the parents continue to feed them.”
