When a child is born in Cornwall, they are allocated a young seagull, who will watch over them and guide them through life..... like a guardian angel, a kindred spirit or a power animal. This is why some people say, "if you find a white feather, it means you have been visited by an angel"............

They make sure you don't get too fat from eating too many pasties or chips...... If they think you have had enough, they will just steal them from you. If you are heading into imminent danger, they will crap all over you from on high to stop you in your tracks thereby saving your life. This is why many people say that being crapped on by a seagull is lucky.

Some of you who have visited Cornwall will have noticed that each house has one or more seagulls perched on the roof or on the window sill. This one is called Albert and on duty looking after a new born baby who has just arrived in Truro.

If you are staying here on holiday, you may even find you have been allocated a temporary seagull guardian, who will sit staring at you through the window and occasionally pecking at the glass, just to let you know they are there for you, should you need them.

My personal seagull is Dolores who has been looking after me since I moved to Cornwall nearly 20 years ago. She keeps telling me I should never drive faster than my seagull can fly........ So I have attached a bit of string to my back bumper, so she can grab the end in her beak and glide along behind me no matter how fast I drive. :)

Best narrative I've read in ages, thank you x
