Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
M U L L
Oh, Mull! Your fields are calling me
Your coasts with birds a plenty
You know we need to breathe your air
And then relax, so gently.
As we arrive, we'll be so pleased
To see your Scottish welcome
We'll stop and stare, at your clean views
Where no man stands and nature rules --
Where wild things live in harmony with
All around so green:
The shades of blue upon the sea,
the most we've ever seen.
After a while, we'll feel as one
With nature and her favourite son
Whose name is Joy, or is it John?
He knows the earth we live upon is all the richer for our sharing
With birds and seals and dolphins.
