Seagull Nesting Deterrence

Our trial of seagull deterrence by hawking commenced on Monday 30 March 2020. Mitchell from Pest Free Solutions sends reports of his activities to Gordon Dugan who is co-ordinating Worcester’s gull control measures.

In the first week Mitchell has been flying Otis, the Harris’s Hawk and a pair of peregrine falcons. Mitchell reports he has seen wild peregrine falcons flying in the area.

We will be supplementing the hawking with a megaphone of seagull distress calls to coincide with the flights of Mitchell’s birds.

The first week’s report follows below. Further reports will be posted here whenever they are received, which we expect will be weekly.
