Is the seagull population getting out of control?

AS A resident of the seaside area over the past few years the seagull population has grown considerably.

Their constant squawking and scavenging for food continues into the early hours and then starts again at 4am.

During the warmer months you need windows open to obtain some cooler air to be able to sleep, but once they start at 4am it is impossible to do so.

The faeces from these animals appears to be covering our town more and more which is not only and eyesore but also a danger to health.

Surely the council should conduct a cull of these scavenging vermin before the situations grows out of control.
