Seagulls Nesting on Buildings.
Seagulls can be a bit of a problem at any time, however if you have seagulls nesting on your building then this is an issue. They make a lot of noise, they make a lot of mess, but that’s not all. If they are nesting then they will have young and then they become very protective. If you come close they will swoop down almost in an attack stance and then last minute fly off. They don’t want you to go anywhere near there young.
Dependent on what breed of seagull you are dealing with depends on what you can do. Natural England has more information on licencing and what can be done using the different licences. This can be dealing with control of the birds, carrying out egg removal or egg changes with dummy. We can give you further advice if you need it.
All the usual bird proofing measures can be put in place to protect a building. This is best done before the seagulls start nesting. Bird netting and bird spiking are the common bird proofing methods used. Other deterrents such as audible sound systems and lasers are always an option but will not work on their own.
