Each year when I am on holidays in England, the first thing I hear in the morning are the seagulls, they scream and discuss or fight and I lay in my bed and enjoy this noise, while the local people are rather angry and send them to hell.
I love seagulls, they are very intelligent !
They ask people to feed them and if they don't do it they just help themselves. The best is, eat your sandwich under cover and children should never go with an icecream on the beach. Here you see two disappointed seagulls because the little girl only talked to them.
Wherever you are not the big brother is watching you, but a seagull. They are worse then all intelligence services together ! A seagull's eye doesn't miss anything !
They keep you company on the table next to yours, keeping an eye on your plate, follow you, or just sit there and watch what you are doing. You never feel alone !
They are the best parking guards ever, they sit on the cars in groups and are not like human guards walking around and see nothing. Maybe car owners would rather prefer the human guard, as a seagull so busy with observing, could leave some unpleasant spots on the car as evidence for their good observation work. A seagull sees from far if you hold something interesting to snatch in your hands.
They also love to go with you when you are shopping, it could be that something falls out of your shopping bag. Why not steal a whole French bread if it looks out of the bag ?
and last but not least, they honor the memorials ! They are not like pigeons, they honor the statues where they are sitting on mostly on the head or shoulder, because from there they can dive easily and catch a freshly prepared sandwich !
