The Seagull Crisis

Seagulls are a common seaside site up and down the UK, but as our familiarity with them increases there potential problems also increase. Every time they are thrown your left over chips they gain in confidence, in recent months this has led to a large increase in the number of seagulls dive bombing people as they eat their lunch. This has led to many coastal communities appealing for fines on feeding seagulls. In fact in Aldeburgh in Suffolk the fines are already in place, in fact the fine here for feeding seagulls is a staggering £2,500. I bet that makes the tourists think twice!
