As the chicks will soon be fledging the nest, now is the time to consider getting your property prepared to defend it against potential South West seagulls nesting and other nuisance birds.
Seagull chicks look for new homes
For many of us, unless we see the problem, we often don’t even consider it. You may have seen birds nearby or heard them overhead as they look for food and generally make a nuisance for themselves. They may be roosting and nesting on properties near you. As long as they aren’t on your property, you don’t really give it much thought. Here is the thing though… as the chicks prepare to leave the nest, they will be looking to set up home to roost and nest for next year’s chicks to be born. Before you know it, you will be the unsuspecting victim of South West nesting seagulls.
If you have had seagulls that have moved on
For those of you that have experienced seagulls nesting on your property that have had chicks this year, the chances are, unless you deal with it, you are likely to experience the same again next year. It is therefore strongly advised that you take preventative measures to stop them re-visiting your property and carrying on the cycle next year.
