Watch like a hawk

I met 'Scarlett' and 'Little Bob' in Brewery Square last week. These 2 Harris Hawks come to Dorchester several times a week to control the seagulls, and to discourage them from nesting in the area.

The hawks were sat in the sun, and seemed extremely content, in fact one of them looked as though she was enjoying splashing in her water bowl, a bit like the children who were playing in the fountains near by.

Both Brewery Square and West Dorset Council, have new buildings with flat roofs, so both are employing xlpest  to keep the gulls under control.
