The gull control has been very successful since you have been on site this year.

The initial work comprised the removal of deposits of pigeon guano and cleaning of gutters and drains and the installation anti bird spikes along the guttering of the church. This work was carried out very efficiently with minimal fuss and disruption. Subsequently we have had pigeon traps placed on the roof of the church to capture the flock of birds. This has proved to be quite effective and a number of birds have been caught and removed. Upon notification that there are birds in the trap the operatives attend promptly to remove them.

The hawking and pigeon cages were a great success last year and we have considerably reduced the amount of pigeons. We are coming into exam season and would like a refresh of running the hawk and have a couple of cages on the roof.
