Urban birdwatchers say seagulls seem to have left Dublin City Centre since we went into lockdown.

Without food waste being readily available in town centres, scavenging birds have been forced to move out.

Zoologist Collie Ennis says he's seen much fewer gulls lately -- and believes they're looking to the suburbs.

"It's interesting  now when we're not around you can really and clearly see they've completely disappeared -- there's still the odd one around but nowhere near the numbers that there'd normally be," he said.
