A pioneering YouGov poll has discovered that Brits are more fond of one type of bird over another type.

The renowned pollster asked 1,500 British people: "Which do you think are worse – seagulls or pigeons?"

In a shocking turn of events, the poll found that a whopping 35% of respondents thought seagulls were worse than pigeons, with just 13% dubbing pigeons inferior.

The seemingly fleeting poll did have a point, however. A later question asked respondents how they would feel about a cull on seagulls to reduce their numbers, to which 44% responded positively and 36% said they wouldn't support it.
