Some of our guests, a family of four from Germany enjoyed watching the gulls progress during their stay in the summer of 2015. One of the juvenile gulls soon flew from the garden and joined the other youngsters on the beach. The smaller of the two was much more reluctant to leave the safety of the Pebbles garden and one of the girls from Germany who became quite fond of the young gull named him 'Steve'. There was a big cheer from the guests one morning when Steve finally plucked up the courage and flew down to the beach.
Steve continues to visit Pebbles and even made an appearance for the 2016 RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch!
