Bird scarers. What works?
« on: December 30, 2006, 20:31 »
I have a huge problem with birds in my garden as my neighbours feed them constantly.  Sometimes, it's like the Hitchcock film outside :cry:  

Last spring I bought a childs kite in the shape of a buzzard and strung it up so that it moved around in the breeze.  Naturally I called it Leighton after a local town called,.....wait for it....Leighton Buzzard :lol:

It might be purely co-incidence but not one pigeon landed in the garden, though there are many.  Unfortunately the local sparrows couldn't give a damn and demolished every green shoot in sight :cry:

What do I do?  I know netting works, but has anyone found anything else that deters the little b******s
Cheese makes everything better.

A cat! works well for us we have two of the lazy things. :lol:
My mum swears by thin black cotton strung onto bits of stick round her seedlings, "they don't like it on their feathers or legs"so she says.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

Tried cds but they were completely ignored by the sparrows.  Also, like my neighbours so nobbling their bird feeding is not an option.
