 Seagulls nest
Topic Originator: widtink

My old mother has been on the phone to me about a seagull's nest on her roof.
Can I remove a nest myself?
Or do you need to be licensed for that kind of thing?

She's not sure if there is eggs in it or not.
Only way to check would be for me to get up there for a look... Which I don't really fancy to be honest.
I don't have roof ladders and the tiles are slate so I can't just shimmy up.

It's a well known medical fact that some men were born two drams below par.

You’ll soon find out of you approach the nest as they get very aggressive.
Make sure you have your escape route planned.🤔

3 types of Gulls fall into the General license which means you can kill, take eggs and chicks for certain specific reasons.

Check here to dee if you feel as though you have the species and you can use one of the licences listed, if so bash on. Remember you need to inform SNH by the end of the year.

Still not sure... Went for a look last night and although I can see what looks like a nest, there was no activity or gulls near it.
Hoping they have abandoned the nest.
