Seagulls are small birds commonly found near the sea, especially in port cities like Port Sarim and Catherby. Their low max hit and Life points make them a prime target for beginners.
Seagulls are also a good way to start training prayer or money making, as their only drop of bones (if you exclude the Cornucopia) can easily be deposited at the Entrana Monk's deposit box to be sold or buried later.
On 1 April2009, in the Patch's notes, Mod Emilee said: "Seagulls have now been added to the Hunter skill and can be found along some coastlines. You'll need to wave your butterfly net in a gullible fashion to catch these birds". It was an April's fool prank. During the Easter event they removed the seagull from the Hunter skill.
