The amazing tale of a ‘homing’ seagull…
We do love the weird and wonderful stories about animals that can be found in the Archive – truly, the BNA is a treasure trove of stories about animals.
Here’s a very interesting story about a seagull ‘good and true’, who would just not let an ‘auld acquaintance be forgot’ – in short, this bird was a ‘homing’ seagull.
So it reveals much about seagulls, this story – after all, it’s not all ‘Jonathan Livingston’, the life of a seagull…
We like to think that this seagull told stories about catching this fisherman, and also about how the fisherman was recaptured after slipping away.
