The gulls love bin day, especially if someone puts food in their black bags instead of putting it in the green food waste box.
This handsome lot were having a field day. The noise was fantastic, all the squealing and shouting. I knew as soon as I heard them that they'd found food.
If it hadn’t been the gulls tearing into the bag, it would have been the local cats, but they were all keeping well away.
Not everyone loves gulls. People complain about the noise and the mess and some even call for them to be killed because they are a nuisance, but I love them. I love the noise they make – even at 3 am on bin days if someone has put their rubbish out early and they hit the jackpot!
I think these were all herring gulls.
