A blog in pictures “My adventures at Spurn Point Heritage Coast”

Last month I made a visit to the wonderful Spurn Point Heritage Coast. I took along my mountain bike so I could explore and my i-phone to take the pictures. Spurn Point Heritage coast is a wonderful coastline which consists of a long, curving hook of shingle and sand arcing into the mouth of the River Humber. Find below a blog in pictures of my wonderful adventures at Spurn Point.

The ‘Power’ of a Greedy Bridlington Seagull

The Power of a Greedy Bridlington Seagull that swept through the nation like bird Flu!

The Greedy Bridlington Seagull eating a chip that swept through the nation like Birdflu Picture by Hannah Coleman as seen on the BBC

I met this cheeky Herring Gull who was hungry for chips in Bridlington. He was fascinating to watch and  wasn’t scared of anyone all he wanted was  chips. I took many snaps of him on my i-phone, it was only when I got back home to download the photographs  I found this amazing picture of him in mid gulp.  I tweeted the picture on to my Twitter account and was amazed at how many people retweeted the picture and the feedback received was incredible. Since then the Greedy seagull went Birdflu (viral) Mr greedy graced the pages of The Grimsby Evening Telegraph as the picture of the day.

Soon after the Greedy Gull appeared on Twitter and in the Grimsby Evening Telegraph, his greediness created a national pandemic like birdflu since his 100 + retweets he has since appeared in the Daily Express

Followed by the BBC  who LOVED him and used him on the BBC  ‘The one show”

He then was used on Peter Levy’s BBC Look North programme TWICE!

Most recently my seagull eating a chip was used on the main BBC UK news website and I was even name checked as the photographer!

The story on the Bridlington seagulls became the second most popular UK BBC news stories online dated 13th July 2011, here are two links to the BBC articles this one is more text with the picture http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-humber-14129164 this link is the video link as used on the news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-humber-14125924

What a crazy frenzy Mr Greedy Seagull has had, he is now that famous he now has his own media agent, ‘Hot Spot Media’ http://www.hotspotmedia.co.uk/

The demand for him still continues that I now can sell prints, canvases, posters, mugs, wall murals and more products with him on if anyone is interested in purchasing any of the ‘Greedy Gull’  products then do get in touch with me via email info@dreamwall.co.uk 

I wonder if he will recover from his birdflu pandemic through the nation. Seagulls are going viral all over the world this funny YOUTUBE video of a seagull stealing a camcorder also went international viral.

Its been an amazing few weeks for “The Seagull Eating a Chip” photograph, I’ve been overwhelmed with the response especially as I took the canny snap on a 3G I-phone of all the cameras! I studied photography at Sandwell College back in 1992, but never did anything professionally with my qualification its amazing that 19 years on, a simple snap caught at the right time on my 3G i-phone has been a national sensation and I admit I’ve never felt so proud. 😉 I’ve just entered him into the BBC Country file calendar 2011 competition so fingers crossed they like him too 😉
