Occasionally though, while the cats are all sleeping after lunch, I manage to attract a few garden birds which makes it all worthwhile. Yesterday I had a surprise - a flock (?colony) of seagulls arrived and fed on the lawn.
As we're about 25 miles from the nearest coast, I guess it was stormy at sea. Or do gulls feel the cold too? I shouldn't have liked to dip my toes in the sea yesterday. Or maybe they especially like stale white cobs?
