"Dipping seagull eggs in oil, so they do not hatch, is seen as the best way to limit the seagull population. Shooting the birds is too dangerous, while smashing eggs just leads to gulls laying more."
OK. And who has time to go round picking the eggs out of nests (whilst being attacked by angry seagulls), dipping them in oil, and returning them to the nests? Does it work with pigeons too?
Clearly I have spent too long on the interweb this evening. I think that's enough for now.
