Rights to Rare Gull Temporarily Withdrawn
Following a series of derogatory comments about Ballycastle’s fine eating establishments and chip buying etiquette (by the way most locals know better and buy their chips up the street) posted on this blog, the Ballycastle Ornithological Group for Our Feather Friends regrets that it has no option but to suspend all birders rights to see the Ballycastle Laughing Gull.
Road closures and border patrols will be in force this Friday between 1430 and 2100 and Saturday between 1000 and 1900 and all birders will be prevented from passing the town of Armoy. In the unlikely event that a laridophile will pass themselves off as a normal tourist by hiding all those loaves of bread in the boot of their cars we have decided to prevent everyone from accessing the town.
Whilst we recognise that such a ban means nothing to 99% of birders who have either seen the gull or recognise that it is simply another seagull, there are those who cannot stay away. Unfortunately everyone will have to make do with Reed Warblers this Friday and Saturday.
Be warned that this blog will continue to be monitored. Further uncomplimentary comments regarding Ballycastle, it’s warm and friendly chip serving locals and wonderfully well-mannered and cultured tourists (DC - you know who I mean!) from Belfast will not be tolerated.
Spokesperson for BOG OFF
Seriously - due to the Armoy Road Races this weekend, roads will be closed in the Armoy area on Friday and Saturday, with diversions in place to Ballycastle.
