A herring gull in front of a historic decor

This herring gull poses pretty for the castle of St Andrews, Scotland. St Andrews Castle was once owned by the powerful bishops. The castle was heavily damaged and restored many times. After the Reformation it lost its function and became the ruin it is today.
