I LIVE in Magpie Close and think it is about time the seagull problem here was sorted out. Whatever was put in place last year, simply is not working. In fact, I believe there are more and more gulls on our roofs.
I have been off work this week and I can really see the problem for myself. On rubbish day there are hundreds of seagulls on the roofs in Magpie Close and also Field Way and the surrounding streets. Not only is there a big problem with noise, but the mess these birds are leaving behind is terrible. The roofs are white with bird mess, and the cars and gardens too. There are fresh bird feathers and mess in our garden every morning.
