No-one admits to pigeon damage. It is careless & shameful to leave the
vegetables, so carefully and lovingly planted, to be devastated by birds.
But the pigeons came early one morning and made a real mess of the young
brassica leaves in just an hour.
This slide show is not so much about shutting the door after the horse
has bolted, but more about covering the plants…after the bird has flown…
To deter pigeons:
- cover the crops with netting
- hang bird scarers up, such as CDs hanging on string, or plastic bags tied to a stake so that they flutter
- place a cat statue in the middle of the crop to stop pigeons damaging the vegetable garden
