"You looking at me, pal?!" The herring gull glare.

Getting to grips with gulls

Seagulls – don’t you just love ’em? Or maybe you just hate ’em? Or maybe, like HOT’s Nick Terdre, you have a love/hate relationship with them. Pulled both ways, he thought it was time to find out what seagulls are really like.

Unexpected arrival: a red-footed booby

HOT’s Chandra Masoliver takes up the story of the red-footed booby that landed on St Leonard’s beach on 4 September. It was sent to the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) and then on to Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre in Fairlight, where they are hoping it will survive. Chandra had the good fortune of seeing this very un-English bird because she works as a volunteer at Mallydams.
