In the story (Umineko naku koro ni), it's a sign of hope - or at least in episode 1.
The characters are on an island. There's a hurricane coming thus all the sea gulls left (actually they're already gone before the story starts). Horror ensues (goto the Umineko thread). The familiar cry of the sea gulls is a sign of hope that they can leave the island and the police can come.
