Will and Guy's collection of funny seagull pictures and stories.
I wondered why anyone would put up a sign saying:
Workers at a Devon council have been issued with crash helmets - to protect them from dive-bombing seagulls. Flocks of seagulls have been attacking staff who collect weather data from the roof of council offices in Newton Abbot.
One victim, David Potter, said: 'It can be really bad and it's getting worse. It is my fourth year doing the job and there are more and more gulls. 'The big gulls swoop at my head and are backed up by half a dozen others which scream and dive-bomb me.
'It's very distressing but at least we now have crash helmets to protect us from being pecked about the head and face.'
The data is collected every day and is used by the Met Office as part of its national record-keeping and weather forecasting. A Teignbridge District Council spokesman said the helmets were issued as a security measure to staff. Reported in the local South Devon newspaper the Herald Express.
A pilfering seagull has turned shoplifter by wandering into a store and helping himself to his favourite crisps. The fearless bird lies in wait every day and pounces at a corner shop in Aberdeen, Scotland, when the door opens. He sneaks in, grabs his spicy Doritos, then flies off with them in his beak and shares them with other birds.
The seagull, nicknamed Sam by staff and customers, has become so popular locals have started paying for his crisps.
Shop assistant Sriaram Nagarajan reported: 'At first I didn't believe a seagull was capable of stealing crisps. But I saw it with my own eyes and I was surprised. He's very good at it. He's becoming a bit of a celebrity. Seagulls are usually not that popular but Sam is a star because he's so funny.'

Some schools in the town of Porec in Croatia are having to cancel outside playtimes because of aggressive seagulls. City officials have informed Will and Guy that several children had had their sandwiches stolen by these 'dangerous' birds.
'It is too dangerous for school kids to go outside. We have to do something about the situation before it gets any worse,' commented a spokesperson.
Shoppers Warned about Seagulls Fish and chip shops in the seaside resort of Bridlington, Yorkshire, England have put up signs warning customers about being attacked by seagulls. Seafront chip shop owner Justin Carpenter told us he was now losing money because of the number of chip thefts. He said he was giving out more free bags of chips in compensation for the ones stolen by the birds.
Yorkshire Council said they were aware of the situation and warned tourists not to encourage the attacks by feeding the birds. Will and Guy emphasise that this is not a new phenomenon as can be seen by studying this page. For further information see more on annoying seagulls.
Another Dangerous Seagull Eats Man's Ice Cream
The councillors of Dumfries, Scotland are determined to do something about the seagull problem. Even though Dumfries is not on the coast they are plagued by seagulls, for example, 'dive-bombing' people and even disrupting paper boys delivering their daily newspapers. Enough is enough and next spring when the gulls breed, a special anti-gull 'task force' will seek and destroy the gulls nests and smash any eggs. The result should be a reduced seagull population in Dumfries.
"Seagulls are a menace to Scottish towns and cities," said Environment Minister Michael Russell. "They thrive on litter and their aggressive behaviour towards other birds, pets and even people is increasing."
Dumfries town councillor Jack Groom said the time for talk was over, adding that it was time for action before a human was seriously hurt by the gulls. Will and Guy hope that other towns will take similar action to curb the seagull menace in as humane a way as possible.
The seagull thinks it is a cat and often sleeps in its bed Will and Guy

The couple brought him up with their cats, providing a basket from which he acquired a taste for Whiskas. Three years later, Mr Pooh has left the family home, but only as far as a nest on the roof with a female partner. He can't resist returning-three times a day for his favourite food, announcing his arrival by tapping on the door.
The bird eats the cats' food with them out of a bowl
'At first the cats were quite wary of him but after a week they were eating out a bowl together. He'll also often wander in and help himself to cat food. He also knows the sound of the fridge door opening and he'll come in for that as well. He's just like another pet in the family and even comes when he is called.'
