The site where we wish to carry out the control measures are residential properties ONLY
within the boundary of Looe Town, and is therefore classified as an urban site. An
integrated management plan is included with this application. Looe Town Council has
undertaken this egg substitution programme for over 10 years for the protection of the
thousands of tourists who visit Looe each year as well as residents who are subject to daily
attacks during the nesting/egg laying season. Many residential properties make great efforts
to discourage nesting within the confines of the town but the nature of many properties
make prevention only partially successful. Great efforts are also made to keep the streets
clean and clear of refuse, but a large pedestrian tourist population eating in the streets and
open air restaurants presents constant temptation particularly to Herring Gulls with young to
feed. Notwithstanding the food issue, parent birds also see wandering tourists as a threat to
young birds that have fallen from nests or are just fledging. Reduction of the number of
young Herring Gulls in nests on residential properties with the town centre has proven
effective in reducing the aggressiveness of resident birds.
