Pigeons in Diss
The mess left by pigeons is a significant issue in Diss, particularly along Mere Street.
The Town Council was approached some time ago about a potential solution, which involves flying hawks onto affected buildings to discourage the pigeons from roosting in the town with no harm coming to the birds.
Dealey Bird Control & Falconry, supported by the Town Council, has now secured funding from 30 businesses in Diss to pay towards the cost of flying the hawk. The Town Council has committed to funding a proportion of the remaining fees and has approached South Norfolk District Council regarding a contribution.
DTC and SNDC are working on cleaning initiatives to help keep the town clean.
