Essential maintenance to payments
Due to essential maintenance of Dudley Council's payments system, no credit and debit card payments will be possible from 09:30 on Wednesday 19th February (including Callpay, online payments and card payments via DMBC Offices including Dudley Council Plus). It is hoped that work will be completed by the end of Wednesday 19th February at the very latest. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Some species of birds can create a nuisance. This may including noise, fouling, nesting, causing property damage, and can even lead to aggressive behaviour towards people.
All birds in England are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Ace 1981 and are enforced by the police. Therefore when dealing with nuisance birds it is an offence to do any of the following without a licence:
Dudley Council do not take action regarding pigeons or other wild birds, but our Pest Control service are more than happy to offer advice.
If you think someone may be keeping birds and are concerned about the welfare of the animals, such as the conditions they are living in, having water or food available, or a rare bird is being kept illegally. Please report your concern to the form below, and we will investigate any complaints.
Alternatively you can report the matter directly to the RSPCA.
