I am working on a year long project covering the construction of my daughter-in-law’s school.
I use my Mavic Pro to film the build every few weeks so the school children can create an “our new classrooms” project.
I have had some resistance from the neighbours…herring gulls, which display their annoyance by flying nearby however a pair of Oystercatchers have actually tried to physically peck my drone.
My question is has anyone encountered such aggression and if so what was the outcome.
I am sure that these birds cannot see the rotors and are likely to be fatally injured, not to mention the damage to my drone.
It may well be that this is them protecting their brood but as this has been going on for three months now, there chicks will have fled the nests by now.
