Most would consider it a blessing when tens of thousands of seagulls decide to move on from their area.

But the disappearance of just such a flock from part of the Cumbrian coast has caused consternation, with pleas being made for its return.

The birds have vanished from an oyster farm – which supplies the Loch Fyne restaurant chain – where they were once a welcome feature, as their droppings are rich in phosphate and nitrate and encourage the growth of algae, upon which the shellfish feed.

Of course the birds will seek out the best place for food and keep returning there until there is none left.
