We were sitting in the car in a car park in St. Ives, Cornwall, when this inquisitive – and hungry – seagull landed on the bonnet. He knew we had started eating our lunch and wanted a piece of the action. He paced up and down, looking at us menacingly – like the bad penguin in Nick Park’s ‘The Wrong Trousers’.
Eventually – as soon as we had finished eating – he got bored and flew away. I was really pleased we had the car windscreen between us! The seagulls in St. Ives are huge and – as mentioned earlier – quite menacing. There are signs displayed everywhere warning people not to feed the seagulls as they will attack.
