With regard to the letter in ‘The Write Stuff’ of Whitby Gazette, 19 August, which describes seagulls as ‘verminous and dangerous’; seagulls are lovely creatures.
The reason that seagulls are sometimes aggressive is because they think people will take their eggs from the nest or injure their young.
I think that it is very sad that people make such a fuss about the seagulls just because they are around just like we are.
If you think seagulls are not very nice, just talk to them like I do.
They do have feelings like everybody else.
If you just leave them alone they will be friends with you.
They have personalities like people.
