We are too far inland for seagulls, our problem is the feathered rat variety - mjweHKIPRVqynb pigeons. Would you believe, the moron who has bought the house round the corner that backs onto ours actually has some in a cage so that we get almost continuous Dooo doo dut not to mention attracting all the pigeon crapping wild ones coming round to join in.

We had a bad problem with pigeons in our patio in Jimena so we acquired a cat.

He soon made friends and sunbathed on the roofs with them.

I tried a super-squirter water pistol but that didn't really work. It might be worth trying on the gulls.


Back in Estepona Marina, the seagull problem got quite bad so they hired in a man with a Harris's Hawk for a few days. He (the bird) used to fly around the Marina supposedly chasing off the hulls but he didn't seem to have much effect.
