The spring doesn’t just bring warmer weather, it brings an influx of birds looking for a place to nest and breed. When large numbers of birds nest in urban areas, they can pose a risk to health because they carry diseases, their droppings can cause damage to buildings, cars, and machinery, and they can be noisy and even aggressive.
Why use falconry to control pest birds?
Birds of prey can unsettle pest birds and force them to nest elsewhere. We have one of the biggest teams of trained birds of prey at our disposal, and we’re acknowledged in the industry as one of the leading specialist bird control companies in the UK.
