What to do about moss on roof tiles blocking the gutters?

We've had the moss removed from out roof and I think it was about £250 three or four years ago. Don’t have the roof power washed as it can damage the tiles.

I feed the birds and pigeons sit on the roof waiting to be fed. They pass the time by picking up moss and throwing it onto the terrace😄😄

I've just looked outside with this constant rain to see my gutters are blocked with large pieces of moss. I have those deeply ridged, sanded concrete roof tiles. Moss loves it & grows into fat cushions which then fall into the gutters. What can I do about this? I can only think a 3-storey scaffold & get someone to physically brush the roof! But that would be super ££££. Has anyone got any better ideas?
