    I don't mind putting water out in my garden, I have a bird bath and a water tank lid.
    But I wish the noisy tweeting wouldn't wake me up at 4AM.
    Seagulls banned from the garden..too noisy and they scoff all the grub I put out

      I don't put food on the ground, but gulls have been in the garden drinking the water.
      I wish the noisy wood pigeon that sits on the roof would disappear back to the woods.

      Lol...most of mine is in feeders but I do chuck the crusts out..normally in small bits so everyone gets a chance....I find its the seagulls that make the most noise in the early hours...on the other hand there is one poor soul that has been sitting on a nest for over a month now...did the same last year ..she doesn't seem to know her partner might be firing blanks

      Seagulls are up early doors in this area and I'm not next to the sea, but they nest on houses nearby. I went to the beach between Newhaven and Seaford on Saturday morning and didn't see one gull.

      We also have a dog that deters cats from our garden.

      Apparently the guidance is to put out a shallow tray of water so birds can bathe as well - they like a bath.
      I like a bath too, although mainly on my birthday

      They're nesting on my neighbours roofs either side of us, bringing up their chicks.

      I like the sounds from wood pigeons, so you can send him/her across the valley.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!
      When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are.

      I put a bowl on the garage roof. A dirty great big Seagull flew down, had a drink then moved it to the middle of the garage, now I can't fill it up. He is now known as Selfish Seagull.
      Good news!!! a neighbour let me borrow his ladder, and with my broom I managed to retrieve the bowl, fill it up and put it back. No thirsty Seagulls on my roof.

      Wood pigeons like my roof for some reason, but I may as well throw away my alarm clock because they are so noisy.
      I was trying to sleep yesterday afternoon as I was ill ( not a hangover ) and i was woken up by them.
      It's not them at 4am though.

      Lots of nesting gulls in Fullwood, Lawes and Evelyn Avenues because of the flat roofs.
