For 12 years, every day, this seagull comes to the man who saved her

80-year-old British pensioner John Summer saved a seagull with a broken leg 12 years ago. He fed the bird, since the wounded seagull couldn’t get its own food.

Since then, when he comes every day to the nearest beach, Instow Beach, near the village of Yelland, Devon, this seagull recognizes him and flies to him.

John named the bird Chipi and the seagull spends all the time with him when the man is on the beach.

Chipi is about 20 years old, which is about the same old age for seagulls as for people 80 years old. That is, in fact, John and Chipi are the same age. The maximum age for seagulls is 32 years old.

John began to give the bird the dog biscuits and soon he noticed that the seagull’s foot was beginning to heal. John continued to feed her every day and the bird began to trust him more and more.

He began to come to me on his own and let me come very close to him. He never treated anyone else like this.

Since then, John’s meetings with Chipi have been happening almost every day for the past 12 years.
