St.Andrews is home to an army of aggressive seagulls. They open up all the dustbins in search of food and drop whatever they can't eat across the pavements. The gulls have a particular love of discarded fish suppers. In an attempt to outfox them local residents have been issued with large beak resistant black bags for their rubbish. On dustbin day these have to be tied to either your front door or a downpipe to stop the gulls scattering the contents everywhere. The dustmen won't collect anything that doesn't meet these new seagull defeating standards. On our walk this morning black bags can be found lined up like ghouls outside all the front doors.
