I have been woken early by gulls yet again, so I thought I’d see if I could send them away using sound. Gulls don’t have many predators but I remember seeing a TV wildlife documentary where Arctic Skuas ate gulls’ eggs and chicks.
I tried playing them a few recordings from the web, and now they’ve not come back but this is hardly a conclusive experiment. Is it worth getting out of bed and finding the recordings every day?
Would anyone else like to try it and report back whether it works for them?
