We receive many complaints about seagulls especially in the summer. The leaflet below provides information on how to reduce the problem and how to discourage gulls when they cause a nuisance. Properly disposing of waste and rubbish is important. Feeding gulls is discouraged as they can obtain adequate food elsewhere. If you wish to feed garden birds use hanging feeders.
