How Can I Stop Birds Eating My Cherries
I spent the best part of early 2016 setting up a little bird feeding station just outside my office window and spent a small fortune on wild bird seed, fat balls, sunflower hearts, etc.
lovely to see the tits, robins, sparrows, finches, dunnocks and even the occasional woodpecker feeding from the various things I had set up.
Jump forward a few months and how are my little friends rewarding me for all the effort I put in to helping them raise their broods? – The bastards are pinching all the cherries 🙁
I don’t like the idea of netting it and my wife put her foot down when I suggested tying one end of a rope to the base of the cherry tree and the other end around the neck of our cat.
How to protect cherries from birds
If I do rule out netting or guard cats, does anyone have any other suggestion as to how to stop the birds eating my cherries?
