Lest any anxious readers of this list saw my message last night, after a West End appointment this morning I went to see for myself and immediately saw the tethered critter was an admittedly realistic bird scare kite attached to the Cornell Boat House. Messages have been sent, eye appointments made etc. I myself have never seen such an effective kite before.
It will be interesting to see if the gulls become habituated to it over the season.
