Fed up with wildlife!

In the last few days the local wildlife has really given me the runaround. First the pheasants and then the crows attacked the bird feeders. The pheasant climbed the tree and batted the feeder so it scattered seeds on the ground. Clever! Then the crows joined in but were much more aggressive - they used their claws to wrench the feeder off the tree! And this afternoon I discovered that my frilly lettuce has been shredded, probably by pigeons. Feeling a bit jarred off.

    Chicken wire, on many levels, is your friend.

    Ah yes. Put chicken wire like Fort Knox around the bird feeder but forgot about the lettuces. Thank you, I’ll go and do that now!

    On GQT Bob Flowerdew usually recommends getting a little yappy dog which always makes me laugh.

    I agree with Bob ... this is what you need
