"Sunning" and displaying a great deal of pelicanish character, Maris.
As you'd be aware, I strongly favour context. The closed gate speaks volumes to me. It adds an element of trespass.

I had a mate years ago who was a retired Oxford Don and he explained to me that the difference between a Cambridge man and an Oxford man was that a Cambridge man walked about like he owned the place whereas an Oxford man walked about as if he couldn’t give a f**k who owned the place. Clearly these pelicans are Oxford men.
