A letter to our feathered friends...I just thought you ought to know that the holiday season is now upon us and herein lies great danger for you and your colleagues! The all-powerful council has you - yes, YOU - in their sights, both gulls and pigeons. So don't think you can escape. They won't call it a cull, in fact nothing so nasty could ever pass their elected lips, but I'm afraid they mean you no good and have planned to reduce your numbers. How they plan to do it is beyond imagining, but you know these people have their means, so may I make a suggestion before it is too late?Pack your bags and leave! Yes, go on holiday yourselves. Somewhere quiet, where you can raise your next brood in peace, or at least safe from EDCC. We, the residents of the seaside towns here, don't mind. In fact, we will be there to wave you a cheery 'goodbye'. We could spend the money allocated to rid the towns of you on something really worthwhile.Liz Hill Harepath Road Seaton
