An RSPB report highlighted the fact that seagull complaints are at highest for a decade.
“Aggressive seagull attacks are on the rise duchy and people are taking extreme approaches to deal with them. From tales of shocking horror as seagulls are lured to their deaths under the wheels of passing cars, to fed up postmen abandoning their delivery rounds for fear of being dive-bombed, it seems seagulls are causing quite a stir”.

Gull Related Issues
The presence of gulls in a particular area is known to lead to a number of issues, many of which pose a threat to the health and safety of people located in the immediate area.
Below, we have identified some of the most common issues:
- Noise Pollution – Gulls are widely acknowledged to make a great deal of noise. The presence of gulls and their nests in or around a property is highly likely to result in significant noise.
- Unpleasant Smells – Gulls are not choosey about the food that they eat. An unfortunate side effect of this is the fact that their droppings have a really bad smell, can be highly corrosive and are therefore extremely harmful to human health.
- Damage to Property – The cumulative damage caused by gulls over a period of time can often be very costly to repair.
- Injuries – Gulls are extremely protective of their young and if they feel threatened in any way and are known to react very aggressively. Prevention is better than cure
