Seaside residents asked to help birds fend
for themselves away from towns
Increasingly, gulls hang around British seaside resorts scavenging for food,
and it works to their advantage that we are a slovenly lot and don’t dispose
of our leftovers correctly. However, sometimes they don’t even wait to peck
around in our rubbish, and zoom in to snatch a morsel as we eat. A prominent
gull researcher in Britain says that maintaining eye contact can deter gulls
from snatching food, which is good to know, but maybe this is easier for
an ornithologist than the average person eating chips at the seaside.
