Trinity College Dublin tweetz:

Yes they may steal your sandwich in College Park and they screech through your phone calls on campus but many of the gull types that frequent campus are in fact on the amber and red endangered list. #BiodiversityWeek

There you go now.

    Are they only endangered on the Trinity college campus? Is that because they’re being shoved up bottoms in bizarre hazing rituals?

    Ah here, some of them are so urbanised they are strutting around wearing a backwards baseball cap with a fag hanging out the side of the beak.

    I admit to attacking the more aggressive ones that live on my street with a broom like a mammy of old

        Well I’m so glad SOMEONE understands.

        When they started attacking my kid while she was riding her bike in the evenings, I felt my only choice was a swift, broom-shaped counterattack.

          Ha..jeez. Hope your little one isn’t scarred by that experience! When my sis was a kid she was swarmed by pigeons on O’Connell St. She hasn’t been the same since…birds FREAK her out. House on our road has 2 dogs who ‘attack’ and go crazy at anyone passing. Was with my Mam (who is old n frail) walking past, dog comes running out and bites mam’s leg, followed by a swift half volley by me launching it into their front garden. Owner comes running out screaming at me!! Sorry luv..control yer dog! Cops called to our house later n’all! Haha.

            …and right after I post above, up pops the Vermin story. *eye roll* I’m not a sicko now ok…however saying that, a mid-air YELP is a memory I will treasure.

    Any species of seagull living next to a big urban area, with all the variety of food sources that this entails (discarded kebabs, etc) probably doesn’t deserve to survive, tbh…

    Didn’t know they could screech through phone calls. Nice. How can I get them to do this for my calls? Wave phone at sky and yell ‘it’s for you-hooooo’?

    Those fuppers are fond of making loud screechy love outside my office window. I’d cry no tears were I never to see one again.

        no, sadly, she’s right

        it’s loud screechy (self) love

        the really sad part is when she drops the blind
