Nine-year-old Cooper Wallace, hailing from Derbyshire, England, has become the talk of the town and the darling of headlines following his remarkable victory at a European seagull impersonation championship. His uncanny ability to mimic the distinctive cries of these coastal birds not only captivated the audience but also clinched the admiration of the judging panel at the competition held in Belgium.

In an interview with The Times, Wallace shared insights into his unexpected journey to seagull stardom. Initially met with skepticism by his schoolmates, who found his imitation somewhat bothersome, Wallace's talent eventually earned him widespread acclaim. Reflecting on his motivation, he revealed a peculiar incident involving a seagull peck that sparked his fascination with these avian creatures. "My school friends thought it was annoying at first. But not now. I did it. I just wanted to make the noise to remember I got pecked by one. But I like seagulls," Wallace shared.

Expressing his fondness for seagulls, Wallace explained that he found them to be "really nice animals" and particularly admired their distinctive calls. Clad in a whimsical seagull costume, Wallace humorously likened his transformation to that of a comic book hero, proclaiming himself "Seagull Boy," drawing parallels to Spider-Man's iconic origin story. "Spider-Man got bit by a spider and turned into Spider-Man, and I got bit by a seagull, so now I am Seagull Boy," he quipped.

The competition itself was a spectacle of talent and enthusiasm, with participants vying to deliver the most convincing seagull impressions before a lively audience. Leading the panel of judges was Jan Seys, a respected marine biologist, who lauded Wallace's performance for its authenticity and creativity. Seys praised the young winner for seamlessly incorporating various call types into his rendition, each resembling the cries of real seagulls with remarkable precision.

Delving into the criteria for evaluation, Seys explained that judges meticulously assessed factors such as timbre, rhythm, and variation, emphasizing the importance of capturing the essence of seagull communication. Wallace's ability to masterfully emulate these elements set him apart as a deserving champion, earning him accolades from both the scientific and entertainment communities alike.
