FIREFIGHTERS helped to rescue a trapped seagull on a roof in Weymouth town centre.

A high-rise fire appliance was used in the rescue operation in St Thomas Street this afternoon.

The bird was caught in netting.

Part of the street was cordoned off during the operation.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said the gull was handed over to the RSPCA once it was freed.

A brigade spokesman said the fire service and the RSPCA have 'a memorandum of understanding' around these types of incidents and costs will be recovered from the responsible person.

Well done, lads !! It would have added to the interest if we'd been informed as to which species the bird belonged - although I'm guessing a gull or a street pigeon. If mesh of net very small, could have been Sparrow or Starling, one supposes..

YOU, *SIR* are an imbecile !! Would your attitude be the same if it were someone's little retard trapped on a roof ?? OK, I admit it - in the latter case, I'D have said *Go to the rifle !!* but NEVER for non-hominids, thank you very much, Numbnutz !!

We are ALL born as little retards until, hopefully, we show we have a fully-functional brain by exhibiting curiosity about Nature - leading eventually to an immense love and respect for our fellow travellers on the wonderful adventure that is the biotic enterprise. Many of we clothed chimps, regrettably, do not attain to this level of intellectual development - and so remain retards to the end of their days. VERY sad, since it is Other Species who fill our lives with interest, joy and a reason to go on living. To the dullard, of course, life consists of football, lager and spending the best part of their empty lives in wage-slavery in order to make someone else even richer than they are already.
But to return to the news topic in question: a great many people come down here, buy a house, and then start complaining about gulls (or, as the great ignorati insist on calling them, 'sea'gulls - a term you will NOT find in any bird book I'VE ever read !!). What they conveniently overlook is that a few hundred years ago, when Weymouth's population would have been a saner and more manageable 60 or so, Herring Gulls would have nested on any slightly elevated area free from the threat of flooding. For sure the Nothe promontory would have been one such place, and perhaps the Pye Hill area another. Then along comes Johnnie-Chimp-in-Clo
thes, building houses all over the landscape - and what do you think happens ?? Right - the Herring Gulls continue to nest where they always have, but now a little higher - on the roofs of the houses intruding on THEIR nesting-grounds.. Problems with Wildlife can usually be traced back to something done by US in the first place..

I don't agree that St Thomas Street (or more precisely the ground upon which St Thomas Street was sited) was ever a preferred nesting site for Herring Gulls until the buildings were constructed. Your general description of preferred nesting sites only applies if the risk from predators is low which is often the case off-shore (i.e. islands) but not on the mainland. In mainland coastal areas Herring Gulls prefer to nest on cliffs or other elevated sites (e.g. rooftops) so the St Thomas Street development actually added nesting sites rather than displace them.

ISSUES ?? You could say that - seven BILLION two hundred and nineteen million of them, to be exact, at last count !! Less, of course, those who put The Others first (The Others = all those INTERESTING, BEAUTIFUL and CHARISMATIC species out there - which are becoming extinct at around 1,000 times the natural rate, thanks to *Earth's Cancer*/*the Plague*/the *Virus in Shoes*/ *clothed chimps* - call it what you will - it's US !!!!)
As with any species that gets so strangely out of kilter with the ecosystems, Nature WILL find a way to correct her mistake. Because we are at least a thousand times overpopulated, and shortsighted people eschew the wisdom of Population Control & Eugeniks - first publicly mooted by Plato nearly 3,000 years ago - then Nature will work against us on many fronts. Our insane numbers have caused climate change, which will lead to even more extreme weather events. Several cubic kilometers of an island in the Canaries are poised to drop into the sea at any time. This will cause a Tidal Wave of a kilometer height, which will devastate the UK and the US Atlantic coast. Infrastructures we now take for granted will go down, resulting in disease for certain, and possibly starvation, too. Also, with the growth in travel to exotic destinations, we may expect to see a drastic increase in DEADLY contagious diseases. Meanwhile, tories such as MONSANTO, with their agricultural poisons, such as Roundup - responsible for the death of Milkweed plants in Amerika, which in turn has led to an astounding drop in populations of Monarch butterflies - are wiping out bees, butterflies and other pollinating creatures - all so that we can grow more food to feed the superfluous offspring of every Tom, Dick and Mustafa on the planet. There's an interesting little poster I've seen online, depicting a Bee. The Bee is saying: "When I go - YOU go !!" This is, of course, how it will be - and all because we refuse to sterilize all those with rubbish genes among our populations. You CAN'T fight Nature - and if you have the temerity to try, YOU WILL LOSE !!

For sure the Nothe promontory would have been one such place, and perhaps the Pye Hill area another. Then along comes Johnnie-Chimp-in-Clo

thes, building houses all over the landscape - and what do you think happens ?? Right - the Herring Gulls continue to nest where they always have, but now a little higher - on the roofs of the houses intruding on THEIR nesting-grounds.. Problems with Wildlife can usually be traced back to something done by US in the first place..
I quote you as saying
"spending the best part of their empty lives in wage-slavery in order to make someone else even richer than they are already."
Are you either self employed/have your own business or do you chose to not work?

VERY sad, since it is Other Species who fill our lives with interest, joy and a reason to go on living. To the dullard, of course, life consists of football, lager and spending the best part of their empty lives in wage-slavery in order to make someone else even richer than they are already.

So did you used to have an 'empty life in wage-slavery in order to make someone else even richer than they are already'?

ISSUES ?? You could say that - seven BILLION two hundred and nineteen million of them, to be exact, at last count !! Less, of course, those who put The Others first (The Others = all those INTERESTING, BEAUTIFUL and CHARISMATIC species out there - which are becoming extinct at around 1,000 times the natural rate, thanks to *Earth's Cancer*/*the Plague*/the *Virus in Shoes*/ *clothed chimps* - call it what you will - it's US !!!!)
As with any species that gets so strangely out of kilter with the ecosystems, Nature WILL find a way to correct her mistake. Because we are at least a thousand times overpopulated, and shortsighted people eschew the wisdom of Population Control & Eugeniks - first publicly mooted by Plato nearly 3,000 years ago - then Nature will work against us on many fronts. Our insane numbers have caused climate change, which will lead to even more extreme weather events. Several cubic kilometers of an island in the Canaries are poised to drop into the sea at any time. This will cause a Tidal Wave of a kilometer height, which will devastate the UK and the US Atlantic coast. Infrastructures we now take for granted will go down, resulting in disease for certain, and possibly starvation, too. Also, with the growth in travel to exotic destinations, we may expect to see a drastic increase in DEADLY contagious diseases. Meanwhile, tories such as MONSANTO, with their agricultural poisons, such as Roundup - responsible for the death of Milkweed plants in Amerika, which in turn has led to an astounding drop in populations of Monarch butterflies - are wiping out bees, butterflies and other pollinating creatures - all so that we can grow more food to feed the superfluous offspring of every Tom, Dick and Mustafa on the planet. There's an interesting little poster I've seen online, depicting a Bee. The Bee is saying: "When I go - YOU go !!" This is, of course, how it will be - and all because we refuse to sterilize all those with rubbish genes among our populations. You CAN'T fight Nature - and if you have the temerity to try, YOU WILL LOSE !!
Too much coffee I guess. You've gone way off topic.....
