The Birds - Alfred Hitchcock - The Brummy Version
The Council Mouse in Birmingham has been the scene of a "Noughties" version of "The Birds" the film of Alfred Hitchcock about birds attacking people.
In Birmingham .... surprise surprise .... it is Seagulls.
We have three Seagull Chicks (quite large ones), looking for somewhere to park in the Council Mouse Car park
sometimes they pick a parking place where there already is a car such as that of Talib Hussain (the James Bond film star - he was on the credits).
Meanwhile Mummy (or Daddy) Seagull keeps guard.
and if you come close to her babies she attacks
The last photo was taken by me whilst I was being attacked by Mr or Mrs Seagull.
A short time afterwards Councillor Tim Huxtable (known by the Evening Mail as "the Smiling Assassin" because of his track record in stopping councillors' junkets) was the victim of an accelerated avine assault. Perhaps the Seagulls are worried about the fact that he might prevent them going to Austria.
Councillor Tariq Khan (Lib Dem Deputy leader) was complaining about the birds not leaving him alone. Other councillors (not being sure about which type of birds he was referring to) asked him what he was complaining about.
One suggestion is that we put a pile of Sand in the Council Mouse Car Park and then the Seagulls will think that this is the seaside so they need to migrate back to Birmingham and will move out of the courtyard.
