New anti-bird spikes added to the Guildhall

On the 31st January 2021

 
There are now anti-bird spikes where 2 pairs off Kittiwakes nested last year on the Guildhall. More spikes are also now present where a 3rd pair nested around the corner. Shame as these nesting pairs were popular with the public.

The clock tower remains clear however, which is great news. The clock tower has been used for the last two years and is a great place for them to nest.

It is possible these three displaced pairs will move to the clock tower instead or an adjacent building.
