You may not realise it, but all birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. However, licences do exist which permit the control of some species.
From year to year these licences can change, but we always ensure that you remain on the correct side of the law, as it applies today, when we deal with any nuisance birds.
Generally, here in Scotland, the main species that are an issue are feral pigeons, gulls, sparrows, starlings, and crows (including jackdaws, rooks, and carrion crows). Other possible trouble-makers include house martins, wood pigeons and collared doves.
