Birds roosting on guttering

Christina from Rangiora

Hi has anyone got any tips on removing birds from nesting in guttering? Being woken up at 5.30am is frustrating & seems to have gone on for months?!. There are gutter spikes I could get placed. Does anyone know if these are quite pricey?
Any tips welcome.
Many Thanks

Councillor childcare costs will be covered by the Waimakariri District Council

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The Waimakariri District Council will pay for childcare costs incurred by elected members up to $6000 per child, per year – uncapped.

In the proposal document, it stated there were concerns a lack of financial support for childcare created a "barrier for people, in particular women, to enter elected positions in local government".

The allowance was introduced by the Remuneration Authority last year, but the decision to adopt it was left up to individual councils to decide.
