Anyone want a pet seagull? Herring Gull. One has clearly nested on a nearby roof, possibly my neighbour. Last week I had 15 hours of squalking from the adult from dawn to dusk. The next day loads and loads of high pitched loud crying from a chick. It was also (I later discovered the source of the knocking coming from the roof area). I thought at first the neighbour was up to something but soon realised it was too regular. I went into the garden to look at the situation and on the top of a chimney pot standing guard was adult seagull. Next to my skylight which is above the stairs was chick 1, chick 2 was on a flat roof about three doors away. I got dive bombed by protective adult. The knocking turns out to be chick 1 doing the "rain dance" to bring up worms. As it is at the top of the stairs it can be heard in every room. It is driving me farking nuts....... I've been at sea this week and hope that when I get back things will have changed but i fear it will be a little longer before they can fly away. The worst thing is that seagulls return to nest in the same place each year, this does not make me happy.
