The spreadsheet asks you to list all scenarios where you might need to lethally control gulls or interfere with their eggs for the sake of human health and safety. 

Everyone who conducts gull work is encouraged to fill in the spreadsheet to the best of their ability. Email the completed spreadsheet to [email protected]

The BPCA pointed out that responses will be shared anonymously with Natural England and potentially other wildlife agencies to help support change in licences for bird control.
