Pigeon roosting causing concern for town council
Pigeons are proving a nuisance within Swafffham according to town councillors.
Action to help deter pigeons from roosting at the Buttercross and within the town centre were discussed at a full town council meeting on Wednesday evening.
Councillor Graham Edwards, of Residents4Residents, suggested using a tape recording of peregrine falcons throughout the day.
He said this has proven successful for him in Spain where swallows are a “big problem” for him.
Mr Edwards added: “Rob Bartram from the Red Lion pub said that this is one of his pet hates.
“He says they have been pooing in the courtyard and that it is a horrible mess.”
Town clerk Richard Bishop said the pigeon problem is going to be “dealt with in June”.
