THE NATIONAL GULLERY OF AUSTRALIA, at Lotus Bay, near the yacht club.  This is a modest one, as gulleries go, the birds having nested in recent years on the decks and in the cockpits of the moored boats.  Compared to their raucous cousins at the coast, Canberra’s gulls, like its public servants, are of a retiring nature.  The coastal gulls (like public servants in this respect) favour takeaway pizza, pie crusts and French fries, while the Canberra birds get their tucker at the Mugga Lane landfill where a large flock can generally be found during working hours.
