A bloody Martin Cade after the seagull attack.<br />
<br />
An ornithologist was left covered in blood after he was attacked by two vicious seagulls as tried to rescue their baby chick.<br />
<br />
Martin Cade was asked by his neighbour to help return the stranded gull to its nest on the roof of her house on Portland, Dorset.<br />
<br />
As soon as the 56-year-old scooped up the baby bird and made a beeline for the ladder to get to the nest he was dive-bombed by its parents which feared he was a threat to the youngster.<br />
<br />
One of them used its sharp peak to strike him square on the head, drawing blood immediately.
