Seagulls like rubber and rubber adhesives. They will peck at the seams in rubber roofs to eat the rubber and glue.

Okay. Right.

It didn't affect rats or seagulls, just the things that compete with them or eat them.

I wonder if the texture is appealing - sort of like rubbery sea life, freshly picked from a piling and dropped on a wharf to break it open?

Poor gulls - not much unfrozen trash around for them to upcycle.
