I forgot to mention the seagulls in this country are huge! I have seen them queue up for sausage rolls with clip-on ties and fake moustaches and get served! They really are massive. When they walk on the roof of the flat, I swear there are three year olds with swim fins playing tag up there. I am not squeamish with wildlife. I grew up in a part of the world where wildlife kill humans on a regular basis. I used to swim in the same lake as a two-foot alligator, but I definitely duck when these things swoop to snatch children out of the prams. I dam not very artistic but here is one of me and a gull to give you an idea of scale.
The gull is on the left and I am on the right.
