I'm moving to Wales - 35 C is positively scorching - about 95 F. I wonder if they have one of those micro climates there?


Wend Report 4 Feb 2013 10:52

Bet you don't know which way to turn this morning Mr. Cocoa - google, wiki, dictionary, GR Chat and so on - far too much excitement. Calm down dear ;-)

No seagulls here this morning yet, but pigeons, the other day we had
some geese going over.

I can see the sea from the front of my house with windmills on the horizon and the odd boat
.I get a lot of herring gulls,who dirty my clean windows....they are a nuisance can hear them in a morning on my roof....and I have to watch out that they don't steal the food I put out for the birds on the bird table.
I have seeds etc they can't get at in the feeders,but they sit on my garage roof waiting to swoop.

A local school used to have a flock of gulls swoop down on to the playground after Break. It looked like an Alfred Hitchcock scene from 'The Birds' :-0

so hot here in Cardiff - all the doors and windows open - I'm in a swimsuit now!!!


Vintagefinemaid Report 4 Feb 2013 11:12

I may not be by the sea, but as the river I live by is tidal I had always assumed the big birds with flappy wings that I see from my window sometimes were Seagulls - but I stand corrected


eRRolSheep Report 4 Feb 2013 11:22

Ann - make sure you use suncream!

Vintagefinemaid - do the big birds with flappy wings make horrid screeching noises? They must be seagulls


supercrutch Report 4 Feb 2013 11:23

I can see the boundary wall opposite, the play school (when I opened the window this morning I was greeted with the sounds of 'sosban fach'). Further are the hills on the other side of the bay.

I can also see seagulls, well they are gulls flying around the bay lolol

It's sunnyish and 7 degrees :-D


Vintagefinemaid Report 4 Feb 2013 11:24

They can be quite raucous at times

I think most of us call them seagulls VFM :-)

We usually have gulls in abundance ,tho none around today , I live 30 mile inland, some gulls you can see almost anywhere, particularly the Black-headed Gull....
according to my RSPB Complete Book of British Birds :-D ;-)

No I'm not a 'Twitcher' or bird watcher I just have / like reference books .

I call them Sky rats,cos they are right scavengers . :-|

From my kitchen (front of house) we can see a round castle on a hill :-) :-)

From the back our garden, then garden at bottom with Fir trees approx 100ft high through the gaps fields and an old viaduct....we are very lucky:)

jude :-) :-)


Bobtanian Report 4 Feb 2013 11:39

If Laridae( a new word I learned this morning) at the coast are call seagulls........

then should not those that frequent lafill sites an others be call Landgulls?

probably meant 45° f


Vintagefinemaid Report 4 Feb 2013 11:39

Amazing what we can see from our windows if we take time to look

after all

They certainly are raucous Vfm. I love the sound of gulls, they remind me of a very special and magical place :-D :-D


'Emma' Report 4 Feb 2013 11:42

Jude that sounds lovely, am soo jealous ;-)

Island Report 4 Feb 2013 11:45

Quite right Bob, if they ain't by the sea why call them 'seagulls'.

Why not just 'gulls'? :-D
