“Waterford has been put on ‘high seagull alert’ following numerous reports of swooping and dive-bombing by a lone seagull.

“Jonathan has swooped down at joggers and some reports say he appears to ‘laugh’ afterwards. It is advised that you don’t eat any food, such as ice-cream or a sandwich, while walking in this area.”
