Surprisingly, although I live Thingwall area, it is uncommon to see seagulls on a daily or even weekly basis around here. Yet if I should dare to put a couple of old bones out, a squabble of them appear and start squabbling, before having chance to lock the back door and boil the kettle. Can they smell so well? (my bones don't smell ) Have they got a sound system? How do they know? It's a mystery.

Can anyone say?

They seem to have scouts around ,who seem to see every movement by people.
Watched a load of seagulls a few years ago while I was waiting by Pensby school fields early morning, they landed in the field and waited for more to arrive and when they all looked settled two big ones flew in and landed on the chimney top, squawked a few times and all the ones in the field flew up and flew to the east, the birds on the chimney pot basically stayed as some late comers came to catch up with the rest, I was amazed.

Their eyesight is many times better than ours and their eyes swivel in the sockets. They also get used to where food may be and if just one of them spots something it lets the others know and down they swoop.They will eat virtually anything as well.
