A Storm Is Coming

As I’ve mentioned here before, it’s not an uncommon sight to see flocks of seagulls camped out on the local playing field (see above).

We’re forecast for a big storm today, and when I was walking the dogs yesterday there was a maelstrom of gulls wheeling and turning over the field. They hadn’t settled but I suspect that they are coming inshore to escape rougher conditions out to see and along the coast.

I always take this as a better sign that we’re going to get strong winds, it seems to be a more reliable method of forecasting than watching the weatherman on TV! By the time you read this the gulls and I might be hunkered down staying out of the storm.

  1. Hope all is well out there for you, Alan. Looks like we have four days of snow in our forecasts. I’m praying that they are wrong.

  2. I don’t think it was anywhere near as bad as they had forecast, although we did have a lot of rain. Seagulls are back to normal numbers now too!
