Sea side communities, beaches and urban centers alike are plagued by greedy and aggressive seagulls – always on the lookout for a free and easy to make off with meal. The cause of the increasing epidemic? You guessed it… people. Good hearted people who share their meal or leftovers, careless people who don’t dispose of food wrapping or containers properly… and the unsuspecting – often children.

Grade 5 and 6 students in the UK learnt about the differences between Kittiwakes and Herring Gulls, their natural habitats and their eating habits.They heard about the importance of never feeding the gulls and disposing of their litter and food waste responsibly.

A team from NBC Environment introduced the children to the Birds of Prey they use to deter Herring Gulls during the licensed Herring Gull egg and nest removal.

Scarborough Council says it wants to help kids understand more about the birds, to try and avoid potential attacks.

The authority has also continued its "Herring Gull disruption programme" which began in 2017 and saw eggs being removed and birds of prey brought in to deter the airborne irritants from visiting North Yorkshire holiday hotspots.

The number of reported attacks - or "muggings" - has risen slightly in recent years, although all incidents will not necessarily be reported.

There were 36 between March 2016, when records began to be kept, and the end of that year and 45 in 2017.

47 were reported in 2018, while there's only been 23 so far in 2019 - which could prove the council's measures are working.

The problem is much the same here in Canada. And, at Hawkeye we take the same approach – Birds of Prey as well as egg and nest removal. Contact us for more information on our Bird Control Solutions.
