    Ornothological problem solving...

    Flying rodents. You know the ones.

    The Sheep let loose a bird of prey before kick off today that circled the stadium for the duration of the game. Result? Only the odd feathered rodent overhead.

    Should we invest in the same?

    I’m sure I read somewhere that you couldn’t use these buggers.
    The hook nosed $#@! glared at me as he was carried round. I’m pretty sure he could sense the seagull (apologies Dub) $#@! off me following that attack at Dingwall.

    Was definitely circling during the game.

    I deliberately avoided attempting to identify the species of bird of prey...because I've had the wrath of the Bounce twitchers for calling the flying rodents the sea wurd.

    It worked. Big time.

    I did a stadium tour of the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff about 12 years ago, and they had a hawk flying about to keep the seagulls away. Seems like a good idea and not some bird brained theory as some might think. Reminds me of that Scottish red indian...Hawkeye the noo.

    They're used quite regularly around the harbour area offices in Aberdeen - the one whose handler I spoke with was a Harris Hawk.
    In Peterhead, however - particularly in the vicinity of the fishmarket - the favoured deterrent was a cooncil van.

    Hibs should definitely employ the services of a hawker during the games at ER. I read somewhere once that Edinburgh DC used them in certain areas to rid these areas of their gull problems [probably Morningside and The New Town]. @Jack mat well know if that's the case.

    It's been a long since I lived in either Morningside and The New Town

    I can't say I've ever seen wild or working hawks anywhere in Edinburgh! Like many other issues residents have it seems the council are less capable of dealing with it. They can't even keep communal bins in decent repair.

    They have sort of cloth imitation hawks (a bird-of-prey-shaped kite) flying on masts on top of a few of the big, flat-roofed flats here in Haarlem. Lots of noise bother from nest squabbles at this time of year.

    Seems to be working too... have they tried that yet in Embra?

    Yesterday for me too, in the exact same place.
    Found out butternut squash doesn't take card, so walked round to scotmid to see the bird flying in circles.
    Thought it was like a tied up kite. (not the bird)

    Never realised it could've been this.

    Will ask the resident bird of prey merchant of The Kirkgate to lend us a hawk for Sunday.

    He’s there at least twice a week with his snared hawks and 🦉

    There is a kite that is like an eagle that flies outside a factory in East Lothian...Tranent or Haddington? I forgot. Not sure how effective it is but it is impressive and fooled me for a sec
