Sky the Hawk in action on Swansea roofs

Swansea City Council has employed a bird of prey called Sky to discourage seagulls from nesting on the roofs of the businesses.

 

The seagulls can block up chimneys and ventilation shafts as well as attack work people while carrying out duties there.

 

The Hawk was dive-bombed several times on the roof but stood its ground as it should do and not fly away in fright.

 

It is hoped that the seagulls will nest along the bay or on Crymlyn Burrows as this is their preferred area.

 

Swansea Council discourages the feeding of the birds as this will encourage them to find nesting places where there is a food supply.

More than 600 RAF personnel and cadets will march through the streets of Swansea

The ‘biggest military parade in living history’ is set to take place in Swansea on 21 Saturday 2018. The event, which marks the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force, will see over 400 RAF personnel and 200 air cadets making their way through the city centre following a Civic Honour from the City of Swansea. The event has been organised so ‘the general public [can] show their respect for what [the RAF] have achieved in terms of freedom and democracy and support for our country’.

The event takes place on Saturday, April 21, and traffic and travel in and around the city centre is likely to be affected, with rolling road closures expected from around 1pm.
