According to this intriguing item, drones are coming under attack by birds. If yours disappears, the culprit may be in a nest nearby.

Just get an eagle. They really don't like them.

Neither do seagulls. We had a friends drone over one day, ended up with 3 seagulls trying to attack it in the air. And even after the drone leaving it hung around for two days.

We've got magpies, rosellas, keruru, and hawks among our larger birds, but not a lot of seagulls. Hopefully between them they will take care of it.tongue-out
