Is anyone else being driven mad by seagull noise starting at dawn?

I live on Pocock Street and have been woken up from 5am for the last couple of months by the loudest seagull screeching imaginable. I've googled and there isn't much you can do to get rid of them unfortunately, apart from getting a bird of prey to scare them off (at huge cost). It's been awful with the weather so hot as there was really no way to sleep with the windows closed, I'm almost looking forward to cooler weather!

From my office window, near Monument, I can see a kite attached to a building site that looks (and swoops about) exactly like a bird of prey.

Maybe it'd work to keep seagulls away.

Probably a bit more expensive than a kite: Robohawk

Crows drive us mad, I'd like to stone 'em.
