Just a quick possibly straight forward question, Is it possible to Legally control Black Headed Gulls in Scotland?
I have checked the general licences which olnly list's Greater Black backed gulls for conservation and Greater and Lesser Black backed gulls for environmental health.
I was pretty sure Black headed were on it, possibly been on it in the past and removed?
If he answer is wot i think it is (a No) is it possible to apply for a specific licence for that 1 area and how complicated is the process? And also wot sort off timesale is involved does anyone know?
The problem is on a small nature reserve (pond) which has won a few prizes for conservation in the past over the past 3ish years just over run with these gulls, must be hundreds off them all nesting. Infact hardly any mallard or any other bird for that matter on the pond and pretty much every scrap off nesting cover is being used by the gulls. Any duck/bird nesting anywhere near stands no chance
