Influence: Living in my area by the beach are everyones little “friends”…the seagulls. We all know what a nuisance they can be when you are having lunch on the beach, creeping up one by one until before you know it, you have a whole flock of hungry beady eyes staring at your tasty food. They are also fascinating creatures and it just wouldn’t be the same without them flocking, squawking and just hanging around our beautiful beaches. If you are feeling lonely, fear not, just head to the beach with a bucket of chips and you’ll have dozens of “friend” around you in no time.
I particularly like the Australian Silver Gull with its white head, tail and underparts, with a light grey back and black tipped wings. In the adult birds the bill, legs and eye-ring are bright orange red. Some would argue and say their eyes are sinister and evil looking but I think its a matter of perspective. If you saw one diving for your chips, Im sure it would look a tad sinister.
