Government Declares war On Urban #Seagulls

Ministers plan to launch a research project to find a solution to the growing problems of noise, mess, disease and aggression caused by urban seagulls. The population of herring gulls has fallen  60% in the last 30 years and lesser black-backed gulls have declined 30% in 25 years, but in towns and cities their numbers have increased dramatically as they are drawn to our ever growing landfill sites.  The environment minister, Richard Benyon, has asked  Bristol University  to begin a 3 year research project to find solutions to the problem.
