Our first Saturday here we decided to take a train down to Brighton. It was a super last minute decision but it was honestly so worth it. Brighton is beautiful. It’s a cute and quirky small town full of shops and markets. On top of that you have the gorgeous seashore and pier.
I loved everything about the town…except the birds.
I have never really had a fear of birds until I came to Brighton. We were warned beforehand that the birds were extremely aggressive, but I didn’t think it would be that bad.
Oh, how it was.
The seagulls would basically circle the pier searching for food. And when someone would accidentally drop some of their food, or when some kid would throw them some to eat… it was war. The birds would swarm in on the food like it was a million bucks. I have never seen birds act so insane.
I started getting really paranoid of these birds whenever I would eat because as soon as you would pull out food they would start moving towards you.
Also, this little girl next to us got her sandwich stolen right off of her plate by a bird, and so that didn’t help my anxiety either.
Besides the seagull situation, I loved Brighton so much. It was so fun to walk around the small town for a day. I would definitely consider going back… if I ever work up the courage to face those psycho birds again, that is.
