Demonic Gulls

While I was in Picton waiting for the ferry I went & got some orange roughy (fish) for lunch and when I threw some chips out the window suddenly dozens of ravenous gulls appeared… so I got my camera & mics out & threw most of the rest to them…. I’ve always thought slowed down gulls sound a bit like what I imagine some dinosaurs might sound like, have a listen….
