Seagull population has grown over the years. The dreadful noise late at night and early mornings are causing problems with everyone being sleep deprived which adds to the tiring effect of the hot weather. The number of homes that feed Seagulls in their gardens and on their garage roof are making the problem worse. I don’t have any addresses but I can see from my window Seagull food frenzy appears to be around New Road and Ivydore Ave. I also want to complain that scraps of raw meat are being put out birds and the gulls are causing great distress to many car owners. If these birds carry on breading they will overtake the town. You can’t even eat outside now for fear of an attack to steal food. Something needs to be done to reduce the population.

  • Problem now multiplied because of new born gulls. It’s only going to get worse every year! The noise etc is dreadful. We’re not near the seaside so it must be dreadful living in town. These nasty, noisy gills will eventually kill the seaside resorts in years to come. No one will want to visit unless they like being pooped on, food stolen and attacked. It not the gulls fault! The full population needs reducing before it’s too late. Just my opinion!
