FFF55. Do not feed the birds

Do not feed the birds, the sign said. Flying pests are a health hazard and you could face a fine of up to £5000. But the gulls could catch chips in flight. And Mary could not resist watching their aerobatics.  Besides, they would have trouble finding £5000 from her anyway. Let them try to sue!

*********

It wasn't until after we fed our fish and chips to the gulls that we saw the notices. Ah well. The photos were good.

FFF55 is a weekly challenge set by the G-Man for a 55 word flash fiction story.

Hi Anne .. good picture .. but they are viscious those birds! Still I have a post written by a Gull .. so I'd better be generous to them and say what wonderful flyers!

Cheers - enjoy the weekend .. Hilary

Gulls mass around a local primary school nearby where we live, and dive-bomb the wee ones for their playtime treats. They are a danger to the children, never mind a nuisance.

If they're trying to keep the gulls on a more nutritious diet, I have news for them--gulls will eat *anything* Loved your photo, and 55.
