Mr Wood is a professional bird handler and during the day works with his Hawk Sika keeping the gulls at bay around the South West? He was mentioned in Salcombe Information Centre’s Facebook this week.

Hawk 2

The Harris Hawk programme is underway, the programme will see the hawk in town four days a week for 3 hours at a time for six weeks, then another six weeks doing two days a week. We are mixing up when the Hawk is flying, not just mornings, this Sunday it will be in from 3 pm which will catch the gulls as they think about roosting.
Over the weeks if we spot some hot spots of gulls gathering they will receive a visit, to make them feel uncomfortable about roosting or nesting.

All of this comes at a cost. If you would like to make a donation please contact Salcombe TIC 01548 843927
