Given what you say, and what I have been told by others who have experienced it, about the predatory nature of Dartmouth's gulls, what level of personal preventative action is permissible in warding off and/or discouraging gulls? I assume that, for reasons that make no sense to me, these birds are protected from being harmed by humans: is that the case? Is one allowed to ward them off with, for example, a walking stick? I am proposing to spend the month of August in Dartmouth, as well as spend a lot of money there, and so would appreciate some guidance in order not knowingly to break any law, however misguided I might think it is.
