we dont have problems with rabbits on our lotty cos theres a few foxes live nearby.  i actually made my own from some plastic but then saw some nice shiny blue foil ones in poundland so gave in and bought one of them!  i think ill make some windchimes aswell.

you can get them in the pound shops all day long, well here in the north east too, and every year at a certain time they have 2 or 3 for 1 in there for gardening stuff.
