Herring gulls nesting on roof of house due for demolition (1 Viewer)


New member
Hi. I was looking for some advice on herring gull chicks on a house due to be demolished next week. Could anyone advise if it is possible to encourage them to a neighbouring roof to allow demolition ; i.e. bt creating a level area on the next house that they could shelter upon?
Many thanks
Welcome to Birdforum.

Are the chicks fledged? Have they left the nest? If so, they will fly awat once the work starts.

If they are still in the nest, then it will be an offence to start the demolition work.
If you are in UK you can apply for a licence from Natural England/NatureScot/NRW/DoE to disturb the nest otherwise you are committing an offense.
