Our client, a hotel group based on the south coast have used our falconry services for many years. They were having a major refurbishment to the roof and asked if there was anything else we could do to reduce the gull issue and prevent nesting and prevent the new roof from damage.
We carried out a complete survey of the roof as the hotel had scaffolding all round.
The biggest issue presented where gulls could nest was around the chimney. Proofing the chimney with bird spikes was of most importance as well as bird netting to other areas.
Although only a relatively small area to find a solution for there were a number of obstacles to deal with throughout. Pigeon netting was the immediate answer which will completely restrict access to the problem pigeons.
Access wasn’t easy so scaffolding was arranged to give full access to the area. Scaffolding couldn’t be installed safely without creating a barrier for areas of net install. Our bird proofing team carried out an initial fix with perimeter wires installed and net then to one side with a temporary fix to prevent pigeons access straight away.
Our team then were able to return working alongside a scaffolding team so the net could be fully secured and job completed.
