Seagulls will roost on the highest points of any structure whether it be a house or office block., usually the ridge, chimneys and flat roofs. If you are able to prevent seagulls from landing on these areas they will often leave the property for good. Seagulls are at their noisiest during the nesting season which is April to July.
The eggs are usually laid in April or May, with the young gulls hatching approximately 4 weeks later and finally leave the nest after another 5-6 weeks.
Seagulls are aggressive birds and are territorial and cause nuisance in coastal cities and in more recent times, inland areas as well. Large amounts of their bird droppings can result in structural damage. The Gull's physical size and aggressive nature, especially at times of nesting can also lead to attacks on humans and even home pets.

Pigeons are very social and welcome new birds. The more the merrier as far as they are concerned.
Very quickly the noise and constant clean-up associated with pigeons are more than enough reasons to have them excluded from your property.
