Epic Pigeon Battle
We’re situated next door to some friendly pigeons. So friendly they’ve decided to make one of our roof terraces a favourite perch.
Understandably we don’t really want them perching on our roof as they tend to leave behind more than footprints
So here’s an update on our pigeon war!
PIGEON STOP IDEA # 1: FAKE BIRD – DEC 2013
This worked for a while until our feathered neighbours became friends with our fake bird of prey.
PIGEON STOP IDEA # 2: CD’S – FEB 2014
Yes, CD’s. Ideally the shine from our tied down CD’s would scare away perchers. It did, for a week. End result, surface area for perching was increased.
PIGEON STOP IDEA # 3: FISHING LINE – APRIL 2014
A thin fishing line – too thin for perching – has been installed along the top of the favoured perches. So far so good, though we are certain it won’t work for too long.
PIGEON STOP IDEA # 4: FREE PIGEON PIE TO ALL GUESTS!
Here’s a photo of our current solution …
If the pigeons get into our grapes we’re going straight to Idea #4
