Gaazy's "Gull Whispering" thread reminded me of an article I read earlier this year about the number of these birds 'settling' in our major cities.

Ok - tell you what - if we delete our posts we can get it back to how it was. How does that sound?

Herring Gulls, well, gulls of any type can just Feck Off ... I bloody hate them ......
and where I work, if you wear white, you get dive bombed by them in the car park. Thankfully, I'm 98% likely to be wearing black (and they seem to leave you alone in black ... I presuming they think you are a big crow or something)

The article (linky posted by bemahan) is correct when discussing the amount to seagulls in Aberdeen. They are bloody everywhere and vicious b*stards .... So, they can just Feck Off.

(sorry for the rant, but it's a regular battle gettting in and out of buildings at work and I'm sick of it).

Don't think that would work. And don't try to tell me you worked for half an hour on:

Ok ok - so it was a bit spammy... but not purely designed to end your reign of zero!! there's plenty of idiot H threads and even a duplicate hamburger still hanging around...

And deleting the posts would have worked, if it wasn't maiden messing it all up...

Oi Maiden, didn't you know you're on a crime scene??

To be fair to Maiden, it was a genuine post so I'm actually quite pleased that someone had the heart to make a genuine reply. Ok, so I'm cynical and a saddo.

Oh don't worry about it ... i see these 'things' day in day out, so i'm used to seeing them that close up too

(they hang around on the window ledges at work and look in at you, and if you don't acknowledge them, they tap on the windows with their beaks ... and can go a bit mental trying the break the glass)

Uuurrgghh ... flying 'pains in the ass'. lol
