In the UK is it legal to shoot Gulls?
I live inland and know which birds I can legally control around my peas and beans. I am presently at the coast (Whitby to be exact very nice too) and can’t believe the number of Herring Gulls, I’ve even seen them pinching food from children! So to me they appear to be vermin and I was wondering how they control the population and could anyone “have a pop at them” if they became a pest on their land?
