I am delighted to report that the owl bird scarers are working wonderfully well on the apple trees in our orchard.  Flocks of birds had been descending on our fruit but as soon as we hung these holographic birds up they disappeared.. well.. they disappeared to other trees that didnt have scarers in them.  Must find more scarers!  From memory, I got them from an Innovations catalog.  I would say these are the most effective things we have tried; better than the Big Eye ball or hanging CDs & flapping plastic bags in the trees.  Time will tell if it lasts.

    Thanks for the link Ali. Yes I have seen them in the Homecare catalog.. which is the same as Innovations I believe.. & its left in our letterbox from time to time by local distributors.

    An update to this article is that the owls delaminated during their second season, with all their reflective cover coming off. I plan to see if I can cover them with some reflective book covering for next year.
