Could anyone who knows seagul/herring gull behaviour who knows of mass reports of them swooping down, even attacking humans, for food, say?

why a flock of them would ignore bread and bacon fat on the ground here, just flying over it or sitting on the rooves ignoring it

Update:

here in UK

    We have over fished our oceans, and they are hungry.

    More than likely they are used to feeding on either the beach or the water. The food has their interest but not enough to overcome their instinct to be wary. If there were no people in sight I'll bet they would eat it all very quickly.
