Regarding my story in the Bognor Regis Observer on June 2, relating to aggressive seagulls in the North Bersted area, I would like to reply to Simon Wild’s comment about opening an umbrella when you are being attacked by these birds.
I walk two dogs, so how can I possibly open and use a brolly with one hand?
People with shopping bags or holding children – how can they use a brolly to protect themselves?
This is a ridiculous situation. Somebody is going to be badly injured, and then what?
Only the other day in Mansfield Road, the other side of the parade of shops, I witnessed a poor cat being mercilessly attacked on the head by three seagulls.
God knows what would have happened to it if I had not been there to help it.
Seagulls are a big problem countrywide and something has to be done about them.
At least put up warning signs to tell people to take care in that area.
North Bersted, Bognor Regis
