I don't think they were too upset by me calling them seagulls, the "Toasties" and "Muffins" didn't last long, one DID leave a note upon flying off....it read "thanks for the food, however, we would like to be referred to as gulls"🤣
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

Next time he comes for food, give him a note saying — “What are you doing near the sea- gull ?

Good topic, can’t stress the importance of access to fresh clean water enough, the birds like to drink and bathe during the day and hedgehogs drink it at night, which sadly get killed by unobservant and uncaring drivers. Important time of year for them all rearing young. Same with insects.

Yep, we have a young 'un regular visitor, though sneaking out to leave food for it without the missus catching me is a pain....."encouraging vermin, next thing we'll be overun with them".....🤔🤣

Feeding mice quite a hoot too....

The other day I saw some ‘vermin’ disposing of a half eaten burger some retard had thrown on the pavement. A refuse collection service, at no expense to the tax payer ! What would we do without them ? :-?

We have a strange attitude to wildlife in the UK in that we tolerate alien invasive species, even though they sometimes create terrible problems for indigenous species.....
The UK has gone soft.
