Letter: Children fear birds swoops ... do something

Children are frightened by the gulls swooping down too close to them.
Children are frightened by the gulls swooping down too close to them.

Re concerns expressed about the growing gull numbers:

I have observed children frightened by the gulls swooping down too close to them.

And the mess around the town is most unpleasant and certainly getting worse year on year.

Please do something positive about this problem!

The eggs need to be destroyed to lessen the numbers for a start.
