All birds in the UK are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and under the act, it is illegal to harm them or try to remove or destroy their nests.

There are ways of controlling pest birds like gulls, pigeons, and starlings, but some bird control methods can only be used if you have a specific license.

Never try to remove a nest yourself as you risk landing yourself in legal trouble or getting attacked by aggressive birds trying to protect their young. If in doubt about how you can control birds on or around your property, give us a call.
