If you visited London Bridge in July, you may have stumbled across the MGAU (Mobile Gull Appreciation Unit) a giant gull shaped artwork by award winning international artist Mark Dion.
Gulls are now very much part of the River Thames’ landscape, but often misunderstood. MGAU toured the area to celebrate the unloved Gull, educating its visitors on their behaviour, calls and habits
