 Hi Peter

The birds were either at outdoor eateries, railway stations where they 
picked up scraps, or outdoor areas at places like hospitals where people
and had tea and scones while encouraging lung cancer.  Some birds were
unpredictable.  They would wander around picking up food scraps then 
suddenly swoop at the eyes of a seemingly random person.  Some were 
selective with their victims - they would only target only women or
people.  I don't believe that they were trying to pester people into
them as there was often plenty of food still about.
