When Seagulls Attack!

Ever had your beach picnic spoilt by seagulls trying snatch your sarnies? Or been ambushed by the birds while quietly minding your own business? Well here’s an opportunity to get your own back and have a bit of fun with this interactive game. See if your score makes the grade. (Click play on the lower left side — it’s a little difficult to see).

I didn’t do very well with this game — only scoring 102.

    I did a bit better, 107 … Started having flashbacks to the first time I saw Hitchcock’s The Birds near the end, though.

    Yes, it gets pretty intense as it goes on. I don’t know how someone could get a score of 1300.

    In real life I’d probably eat the chips as quickly as possible (even without the birds). :-)

    I got a 99. I would have done better, but I was distracted by the memory of an unusual experience I had with seagulls.

    A few years ago I was a waiter at a restaurant that was right on the water. The restaurant had a outdoor patio, and when I was bringing out a tray of food some sea gulls swooped down and ate the food.

    320 first time. I clearly play too many flash games.

    I’m concerned that you’re spending so much time reading the Welsh news. Is life really that boring, or is there some dark secret that you need to tell us?

    This is too much. I did rather well, but then I have survived many picnic lunches on Galveston’s beaches.
