Move the Christmas lights in the Bridge

Kathryn Stephens submitted on

Wednesday 21st November 2018


There seems to be a crow (maybe multiple crows) that is banging on the window consitently since the Christmas lights were put up in the Bridge. The lights are lovely but I'm worried the bird(s) will end up inguring themselves and get stuck on the roof. I believe the staff have noticed it as well and my be able to provide more information.

Hi Kathryn, 

Thank you for your submission. Unfortunately the crow has been pecking and flying at the window for about 6-12 months now. I have informed Estates and Facilities and they have asked for advice from pest control as well as an animal psycologist at the University to help decide what best action to take to deter the crow from doing this. Please be assured we are taking this seriously and looking at options to help stop it feeling stressed or potentially hurting itself. 

If you're interested in being part of sustainability discussions in SUSU, please do attend our next Sustainability Zone meeting (open to all) that is taking place 10-12 on the 7th February in SUSU Building 42. 


Best wishes,
