Not so soft

Bl@@dy jays have started attacking my apples early this year - while still green! There must be six of the damn things at them. It's unlikely that plastic raptors will deter them at this stage as they have a taste for it now. I may have to resort to more drastic measures

Jays are recognised vermin. Give 'em some lead.

Fortunately, we didn't have a bat issue ( Mr. Bat Protection Officer). We only had 3" of guano over the ceilings in the lofts.

Lovely wife puts out bird food and we had a pair of Jays last year, they're back and have a couple of babies this year - very entertaining and good looking birds.

Load of Red Kites turned up here a few years back. They seem to have frightened off the Grey Herons we used to see but the jackdaws don't seem bothered at all. Saw an airborne battle a few weeks back where a jackdaw wasn't keen on a Red Kite in his territory. David v Goliath stuff!
