"gull collected"

So I woke up the next morning to find a note posted through my door saying
"gull collected, thanks"

Hopefully it was alright.

Found this bird

Wasn't planning to use my camera but...
I found this bird outside the house in a flowerbed. I don't know how long it had been there but it looked very weak. It couldn't seem to move except for it's head. I left some water and bread nearby and phoned the RSPCA. They told me to leave it be and someone would be around tomorrow to rescue it.
So i left it there, I'm not sure if it will make it through the night but what can I do? Keep you updated.

Some notable pictures from history

Looks at these pictures?
They look unremarkable.

But they are notable for being i) the first photograph ever taken! (1826)
(The blurred one)

ii) The first photo of a human(1838)
(the street view- you can just make the man out having his shoes polished)

These pictures were taken by french men Joseph Nicéphore Niépce and Louis Jacques-Mande Daguerre, pioneers in photography who, together, wnet on to produce the worlds first commerical photographic process, the Daguerreotype
