Thanks for the "Old" bit Neil!!!!!!!!!

At Wracclesham they probably use copper nails to fix
scrubbing brushes to the uppersurfaces of branches!
Gets rid of Pigeons and the causes of perching pigeons

Mmm. The Buzzard's still for hire
"We can source that for you" can't we Ken?

Plastic rolls of spikes - not aware of anything like
that

Anyone thought of "coarse" Astroturf (Ski slope stuff)
Icould find out about that for anyone wanting to do a
trial
Source nearby.
We can find plastic owls too I expect. I'll have to
dig back for that one if nobody else comes up with a
manufacturer.
Cheers All!
Like the new AA newsletter Bill?
Cracking layout!
Get one of your guys to show you a treeline there's a
dear!

The person I had a discussion with about this
subject was one of our old
lectures at Myerscough! Alan Reeves.. he is the man
with all knowledge when
it comes to using plastic Owls, Hawks test  to deter
pigeons from roosting.
I have used them in the past and recommended it
recently to a punter! It
seemed to work?

Sorry i can't remember though where we purchased
them from?

Good luck
