Scarecrow Compact bird dispersal system

Believed to be the UK's first solar-powered bio-acoustic bird-scarer, the Scarecrow Compact emits distress calls from pest species such as wood pigeons, carrion crows and rooks to create an environment that appears hostile to birds but natural and inoffensive to humans.

The unit is portable, has a free-standing frame that can be located in any part of a cropping field or in the hedgerow and can scare birds up to two miles away. It provides up to 360 degs all-round coverage and automatically plays the distress calls of the selected species at random from dawn to dusk or 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The unit is made by Scarecrow Bio-Acoustic Systems and is available from Martin Lishman of Bourne, Lincolnshire.
