Seagulls are in the middle of their nesting season (May – July). They are not only attracted to good nesting sites but to areas with a good food supply. Cornwall Council offer the following advice:
- Don’t feed the gulls
- Don’t leave lids off bins
- Don’t put rubbish out too early
- Do cover rubbish sacks to prevent attack by gulls or other pests
- Seagull proof rubbish sacks can be purchased from One Stop Shops or the Town Council
- Don’t drop litter
- Avoid eating in the street.
