Seagull Problem Worse
« on: June 26, 2009, 06:06:01 PM »
Hello everybody

Our seagull problem has got worse.  Not really sure what to do?
Seagulls are nesting on the roofs of the houses opposite, and also a man in the next block I've seen feeding them on many occasions.  Last week I counted 17 seagulls circling our back garden, and they are just everywhere and attacking bins etc.

When my baby was a newborn she was in her pram and a seagull was about to peck at her before I scared it away.  But now there are triple if not more seagulls here and it frightens me.

Does anybody have any advice?

This is in Gloucester Close, the house which feeds the gulls is in Alexandra Road/Close and the houses where they are nesting are the houses behind.

Next year, Herring Gulls and Great Blackback Gulls will benefit from full protection. They are being removed from the list of species that can be killed under General License.

Don't blame me. I never voted for this Government.

I agree with the mum above.
Why do people feed seagulls?
I have seen this in the Alexandra Road and Gloucester Close area.
The gulls rip open black sacks on dustbin day and are a real danger to young children as mentioned above.
Please Dont Feed the Gulls  !!!!
