Seagulls are beautiful birds, I’m sure you agree. Especially at sea.
Here in Stockholm you don’t only see them by the water but basically everywhere.
When I moved here, first I found it wonderful to have seagulls outside our window, around the big tree. Isn’t it wonderful? For a girl coming from a country where there is no sea!
The strange thing is that it’s a suburb in Stockholm, pretty far from any water I know of. We suspect they nest on top of the high houses. And I was wondering what do they live on? Here we have fish only in the supermarkets…
Well, here’s the answer: they find all kind of crumbles and other trash, which pretty much takes away from all the aesthetics these creatures are associated with.
And what is more, they have a terribly aweful voice! Why can’t they sing nicely, like other decent birds do???
It might sound very romantic when you are walking on the beach with your love.
But when a dozen of them are having a conference just outside your home at 3 in the morning… I got really pissed off last night! Uhhhhhhhhh!
But this song is way much nicer than seagulls singing: Seagull’s Waltz by my friend, Evan Paul. You should definitely listen to it!
