Help! Birds!

Hello Spriggers

We’ve recently painted our house and these charming little birds have taken to sitting on the drainpipes and watching us have our breakfast. Unfortunately, there droppings are not so charming and have ruined our paintwork.

Is there any friendly way to discourage them?

    Try hanging old CD’s from the roof above the drain pipe, the sun reflecting off the CD’s is suppose to scare them away.

    If I am not mistaken people who subscribe to Sprig are gardeners, so birds are very welcome and encouraged to come into our garden. Thse birds have probably been there all along – you have only just noticed them.

    The birds are attracted to something there. Try putting a feeder in a more remote part of the garden.
