VIDEO: Council’s Harris Hawk left cowering on roof-top as Peterhead gulls rise up against it By Jamie Buchan August 21 2014, 11.37am Share VIDEO: Council’s Harris Hawk left cowering on roof-top as Peterhead gulls rise up against it Share via Facebook Twitter Whatsapp Messenger Linkedin Email Post link https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/aberdeen-aberdeenshire/321978/peterhead-gulls-rise-up-against-harris-hawk-deterent/ Copy Link This is the moment that Storm the Harris Hawk got a taste of his own medicine. Gulls in a north-east town centre are fighting back against the bird of prey which was drafted in to scare them away. Storm the Harris Hawk was introduced by Aberdeenshire Council three weeks ago after shoppers in Peterhead complained they were being plagued by scavenging gulls. The imposing bird was meant to glide through the busy Drummers Corner precinct, striking fear into the town’s gull population. But an exclusive Press and Journal video shows that the notorious Buchan birds have started ganging up on Storm, swooping over him and squawking as he flinches and cowers on a rooftop.
