We live near the coast and our elderly neighbour has taken to feeding the seagulls. Consequently our cars and driveway are spattered with gull poo which needs to be washed off cars pdq as it damages the paintwork. They’re lovely neighbours and we get on very well. but the husband is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s so it seems a bit mean to prevent him enjoying the birds. I also don’t want to damage neighbourly relations but we’re getting fed up taking a bucket and sponge out to the cars every day. Drive will need power washed to clean it. I know - we live by the sea so expect seagulls. but they don’t normally come this far upstream. It’s the food that’s attracting them. Oddly enough-they’re not pooing on his drive or car!! Smart enough to know not to peck the hand who feeds them perhaps?!
No one informed us - family bereavement
Should we ban them? - politicians on TV
Hard to develop relationship - family far away
