When it is stormy the seagulls head inland. Often the fields are full of them resembling giant white snowdrops as they huddle together. Not my favourite bird; nevertheless I do like to watch them glide in the thermals and execute their aerial ballet before performing their hover landings on a barn roof.

Where for the moment, they have displaced most of the corvids.

    1. Thanks Cathy, I’m not really bothered about Christmas any more, but I shall make an effort this year as some of the family are coming over. So I suppose that means the dreaded supermarket shop!!

      1. I know what you mean, Jude. I don’t make all that much effort these days, and what effort I make is spread over many days. It took me about 3 days to decorate my tree, because I lost patience after a while! Oh yes, the dreaded supermarket shop! Ugh. I have to say I kind of enjoyed living abroad during the holidays. I never had to do anything! Have fun with your family. 🙂

  1. When I used to see them in London, they were vicious! They killed pigeons, and even attacked people, for no apparent reason. But when you see a single large gull, resting on a beachfront perch, you realise what powerful and intimidating birds they can be.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. They are magnificent birds, but as you rightly say, vicious! Fortunately they stay away from the garden other than to release their droppings on my car and Velux windows 😦

    1. They keep away from the garden fortunately though the car can suffer. But the ones in St Ives are greedy b’stards. You have to watch out for them if you buy an ice-cream or a pasty.
