Unplugged Project

The theme for the Unplugged Project this week was metal.

We made bird deterrents from old pie cartons.



Ever so simple but I'm hoping they will be effective - not that I want to scare all the bids away, just the ones that keep eating my broad beans!

We made these in our garden when I was growing up. They work!

Very useful project! I have also seen people hang up old CDs to frighten birds. Don't know if it works though. Please let us know and thanks for joining in!

PS: I LOVE broad beans but we can't get them here in the US. Very sad.

Claire, you are a mine of information. We've got a bird feeding station on our plum tree, didn't think about the veg. It survived last year, so maybe we'll be lucky again. I think our birds stay in the tree and don't go on the ground because of the dogs!

That link is very interesting. I think had I found that a few days ago I would have gone with it. As it is I've now enlisted Craig's help and things are thankfully progressing a little :-)

I'm going to bookmark that site though. It's a good idea.

Thank you.
