Coun­cil to of­fer bird ad­vice

The Oban Times - - News -

AR­GYLL and Bute Coun­cil is to pro­vide ad­vice on con­trol­ling gulls and other birds that cause prob­lems.

Coun­cil­lors are reg­u­larly told about feral gulls and pi­geons caus­ing prob­lems by nest­ing on prop­er­ties and ha­rass­ing peo­ple dur­ing nest­ing sea­son.

At a re­cent meet­ing of the coun­cil’s plan­ning, pro­tec­tive ser­vices and li­cens­ing com­mit­tee, the prob­lem and a range of so­lu­tions were dis­cussed and it was de­cided that of­fer­ing an ad­vice ser­vice would be the best course of ac­tion.

The coun­cil will now de­velop guid­ance and in­for­ma­tion on how to min­imise prob­lems caused by wild birds which will be widely avail­able.
