Seagull advice

Jul 2, 2019 | News

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.

Seagull proof sacks (as pictured below) for domestic waste are available from the Town Council office for £3.50 each.

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.

Further deterrent advice to households for next season can be found here.
