Now you're talking Alan
Tried that Jahno.
I read somewhere on the net that oil rigs out in the Gulf of Texas were plagued for years with seagull sh*t destroying the paint, causing premature rust and corrosion. This was obviously a significant cost factor having to continually clean and re-paint the rig! After much research and various tried and tested methods nothing seemed to work. So, they caught one (a seagull) and recorded its screaming and screeching in distress. They then rigged an elaborate system of tannoys across the rigs and played the recording back at random intervals. The seagulls dispersed rapidly and stayed away for hours. Upon returning the process would be repeated and thus the problem was solved.
Now cause Im a sad bastard and seagulls seriously freak me out I downloaded this *.wav file and took it to my rib. As the seagulls approached I cranked up the volume and played the seagull in distress
Did not bloody work!!!
MeMe - you better believe it - that's the first thing I tried - they landed right next my big rubber Cobra (now, no smart alec comments !!) and just sat and checked it out.
I believe they are going to start culling the bastards down Devon/Cornwall way.
