While your common bird in Paris would be the pigeon, we do have quite a number of seagulls in some places. For the past two years, come spring I get a seagull nest on my roof. They’re quite noisy and act as a natural alarm clock when they fly right pass the window, so I decided to record them this very sunday morning by waking up even earlier. For some reason the bloody things didn’t make a peep for one hour and I was left stupid with 30 minutes of empty Paris ambience (quite nice).
I did finally get a pass by as the nearby churches’ bells started to ring .
