Spring coming, the seagulls are back on my roof!




Ah, that absolutely crazy sound from a handful of hungry seagulls woke me up for the first time this year today! Smile

Some people hate them for the ridiculous noise they make (all the time!), the mess after breaking rubbish bags open, and even the low-flying attacks on unsuspecting tourists who find doughnuts and burgers stolen out of their hands in well timed swoops.

I love them to be honest.
Their noise is actually a good alarm clock in the morning, they clean up the food waste which rats would otherwise investigate, and who can blame them attacking bin bags compared to the effort of catching a fish?! Even the folk who complain about them nesting on our rooftops have to realise that when we've built houses on 'their' clifftop, where else are they gonna go?

The coast here definitely seems a little emptier when they migrate at the end of each summer, leaving us people all alone with the cold weather and dark nights. When they return though it always make me smile to know that yep, summer isn't too far away. This morning was my first smile at those pesky, noisy, messy gulls Smile

Thanks, now the song "I Ran" by 'Flock of Seagulls' will haunt me the rest of the day.
