A new 110,000 sq. ft hangar is the home of Monarch Aircraft Engineering at Birmingham Airport and formerly home to nuisance pigeons which were causing issues at the site, prior to the official opening.

Harriet, a Harris Hawk from our NBC Birmingham bird control team was once again deployed on a mission this morning with one of our expert falconers, Lee Rees, (who is the son of NBC Midlands branch Area Manager Graham Rees) and this time they landed themselves an interview on national BBC Breakfast News at the hangar opening event.

It was essential for Monarch to remove the pigeons from the hangar to eliminate the risk from the bird guano which would otherwise be a health and safety hazard to the staff. The successful work has now led to NBC Midlands branch surveyor David Warren being able to agree an annual contract with Monarch to continue providing its falconry response services.
