Lucky gulls did not attack

HOW is this for dedication?

My mother had to have a new TV aerial, so she telephoned District Aerials who we both have had before and was satisfied with the service we received.

HOW is this for dedication?

My mother had to have a new TV aerial, so she telephoned District Aerials who we both have had before and was satisfied with the service we received.

So, as usual, Robert Brough turned up bright and early, as he knew my mother, being 85, was missing her Channel Five soaps, so he did not keep her waiting.

When he was up on the roof, he was working away, then he noticed about 15 to 20 very large sea gulls flying round his head, some coming very close to him. Still he carried on working.

Then all of a sudden Robert, coming round the other side of the chimney stack, noticed a nest with three eggs in it, which he immediately took a picture of with his phone.

You can see the high rise flats in St Peter's Street.

It was then that Robert realised that the gulls had gathered to protect the nest and its contents and he also realised that he was very lucky that they did not attack him.

He was so glad that he had finished his job so that he could get down and away from the nest, but not before he had taken the picture to show my mother, and I thought that I would like to share it with Journal readers.
