I love to be around seagulls. For one thing it usually means I am near the ocean, a place I don't get to see as often as I would like. These flying acrobats are noisy, can be aggressive if there is food around, and there is always a danger of them dropping those disgusting little 'packages' on our heads, no matter if there is one flying over or several.
All this aside I still love them. They make me smile every time I am in their company.
To stop seagulls from landing on these moorings, large nails are driven into the wood. Seagulls laugh and ignore them.
I laugh and ignore them!
And they speak to me!
