Tutorial: How to Shake a Stick at a Seagull – Part 2

Shaking a stick at Seagulls
Now down to business.  (Part 1 is here if you missed it

1. Locate your peaceful flock of gulls where ever they may be.

2. As you will be fairly well camouflaged in your outfit, pretend to be walking casually towards them, with no ill intent. Get as close as you can.

3. As soon as you notice the first signs of attention from the lookouts, run as fast as you can towards them, waving your stick as high in the air as possible, screaming at the top of your lungs.

4. Duck and dodge the flying fallout as fear will scare the **** out of the more timid ones. Hence the need for a good hat.

5. Get your camera busy and capture this great sporting event. Enjoy!

Come ON! It’s a Practice Session For #SeagullButtStickShakingSaturday  – Part 1 of the Tutorial

Yes, you heard right. This is Part 1 of a tutorial on doing just that – Shaking sticks at seagull butts.  Outside of our small area, this sport seems to be little known, but the rewards are so great and the exercise so healthy that it would be good if the sport caught on elsewhere.
Equipment and Dress Code

1. So this weekend, grab A Stick. The one shown here being carried by Steven is a perfect example as it doubles as a walking stick and can serve to confuse the gulls who might think you are just out for a walk, allowing you to get closer to them before starting to shake!

2. Dress appropriately for the sport. A Hat is always a good idea. In fact it is essential . Waterproof (or seagull poo proof) Coat is also recommended. Preferably a dark coloured one, though white will also work, depending on your area. Do a bit of research by scanning the ground near groups of gulls to see the predominant poo colour and dress to camouflage with that and the surroundings. As you see, in our area it is a green colour that fits in best.
