  1. I find removing all nest box's yearly and you will probably find all the casings that have hatched on back wall . Pin moth balls in behind in net bags . Also fly tape sometimes works . They really are a pest to have in the loft !!
  2. They are hungry most of the time . Up here kids from high school have chip suppers at dinner time and through most of the chips at them . However in holidays no chips . They will eat anything going . Young black birds starlings I've seen them take away . Wouldn't surprise me in least. Hungry gulls will swallow a whole fish a baby falcon would just be starter for them.
