Gull Breeding Season - 2023

Take steps now to prevent breeding Gulls from turning your buildings, roofs and structures into a protected a nesting site.

It’s getting close to that time of year again; the start of the Seagull Breeding Season is almost upon us, and you can be sure that within the next few months we will be seeing and hearing a lot more from our courting Gulls.

Whilst nesting season officially starts in May, the courting and breeding process begins much earlier than that. Gulls will start looking for a good nesting spot towards the end of January and by early March the Gulls will have paired up and begun their courtship rituals, territorial defence being part of the ceremonial protocol.

Nest building depends on predators that are local to the area, most Gulls prefer to nest on buildings and roofs that offer shelter, warmth and protection and they are very adaptable in suiting their nesting habits to our modern environment. Once the nests and chicks are in situ, the Gulls become more aggressive & vocal and are protected under The Countryside and Wildlife Act 1981.

Gulls return year after year to their favourite breeding ground and the likelihood is, that if you noticed that you or the buildings around you had an issue with Gulls last year, you will be seeing those same birds again this year, in fact they will have multiplied as their chicks will now be adult breeding Gulls!
