Herring Gull Madness – posted 18/04/14

There has been quite a din outside my office all day, and it wasn’t until I looked out the window that I finally saw why. A young Herring Gull had fallen off my office roof and was wandering up and down the (luckily) quiet street trying to figure out where to go. However, every time someone walked past the adults would dive bomb them and if they had a dog, god help them. This recording is of the adults carrying out a sustained alarm/warning call to anyone who dares walk past their chick.
