Re- wattlebirds making noise in the morning - tell your friend to get 
up earlier!

Seriously though, this reminded me of a trip recently to Tidal River, 
Wilson's Prom. The silver gulls there decided last year to establish 
a new breeding colony right in the middle of the lovely new EXPENSIVE 
cabins by the river. They have returned this year, and the people 
renting the cabins are not impressed, as they are very noisy. 
The park staff are trying to 
discourage the birds, by placing lines with flagging on the roof, and 
even coming around in the morning and drenching the cabins and birds 
with water using the fire-fighting trucks.  They're not having much 
luck though.
