It isn't daft at all - I read on the RSPB site that they WILL migrate South, usually places like Spain, when our Winters get too cold. In London it's so mild they have no need to leave. Whereabouts are you?
Glad to hear that someone has had luck with the cat scarer...I have one that is a 2D metal cutout of a moggy, with scary looking glass eyes. I put it out months ago and found that the local moggy Alpha male had considerately pooed right over it
