Are you serious?
I have noticed the increase myself. Being the night owl that I am, I notice that they tend to come in around 3 am to feed on the insects on the ground. It looks like they`re having a convention or something.
But they`re seagulls! I like the sounds they make, as it makes it seem like I`m by the ocean.
If this is waking people up, and annoying them enough to contact politicians to remove them, then they have bigger problems than seagulls.
