Bird Scarers

Bird scarers and bird deterrents are essential to protect many crops from damage by wild birds.  However if used thoughtlessly they can seriously annoy and disturb the public.

To avoid causing a nuisance, you should seek to minimise the impact of auditory scarers on your neighbours and there are steps you can take to do this:

If you are considering installing bird scaring equipment then we would strongly recommend that you look at the National Farmers Union External Hyperlink website and also the bird scarers Code of Practice leaflet External Hyperlink.

If you are being disturbed by a bird scarer which is not operating in accordance with the code of practice contact us.
