It is indeed very nice to have seagulls by the seaside, but seagulls were never meant to be nesting on the roofs of houses, bringing their young into people's gardens, tearing our rubbish bags apart looking for food and, in the process, terrorising some people.

It is only because of certain well-meaning but misguided people, that they now find it more comfortable to be such a nuisance in the town.
