Tourists warned over ‘organised seagulls’ after woman ‘nearly blinded’

A woman has claimed she was “nearly blinded” in a seagull attack after the beast divebombed for her food. Holidaymaker Mandy S was bitten by a seagull on her lip after the bird tried to get her ice cream and issued a warning to other tourists over the beasts.

Mandy, who lives in London posted her experience on Trip Advisor and cautioned other tourists about the seagulls.

She had visited Perranporth Beach which is a long stretch of golden sand, reports the Daily Star.

She said: “Beautiful beach but my trip was ruined by a seagull dive bombing me, it missed my ice cream but bit my lip causing bleeding and swelling.

“NHS 111 advised me to go to urgent care at Penzance Hospital where I was given a week of antibiotics.

“There are no notices re dangerous seagulls just a warning not to feed the gulls… a couple of inches higher and it could have blinded me.

“I certainly had no intention of feeding the gull.”

She is not an off-case. Several other tourists shared their stories as they could relate to Mandy’s episode.

Barrie, from Wordsley, said: “Watch how you eat your meals – the seagulls look desperate.”

While Reg C, from Cardiff, added: “If eating outside be very aware of very aggressive seagulls!”

Another visitor from Boroughbridge joked: “Only one word of warning.. beware of the smash-and-grab hooligans!

“I refer to the seagulls. Watch your ice creams and pasties. One will distract you from the front, another will pounce from behind!”

Located on England’s rugged southwestern tip, Cornwall is home to picturesque harbour villages such as Fowey and Falmouth.
