When seagulls took refuge at airport

As the Chennai airport staff were preparing to open the runway for flights on Tuesday morning, they had to carry out a rather unexpected exercise — they had to scare away hundreds of seagulls that had flocked the airport for shelter.

Airport director G. Chandramouli said they had to scare the birds away using crackers to begin flight operations. “We didn’t expect to see hundreds of seagulls. However, they flew away soon after hearing the cracker sound; we wanted to begin the operations as soon as possible,” he said.

Airport sources said they usually keep a huge stock of crackers to shoo away birds, but had never seen so many.
