Pigeon Patrol

Despite the scarecrows, gas guns, pigeon shooters and regular walks around the fields, the pigeons have managed to eat a lot of oilseed rape over the past weeks. So now every day is pigeon patrol day in an effort to keep them up in the air and off the crop.

The plants in the left photo have had their large green leaves stripped by the pigeons; they should look like the second photo. 

The bird scarer is having some effect as the field is much greener there than in the other part of the field where the pigeons have been grazing.
