We have several tall trees at the bottom of our garden and over the last few years we've had one or two Crows nests appear, which hasn't caused us any bother, but this year we've noticed more are nesting and it's Now causing a nuisance. Any tips on how to safely and Humanely get rid? I've heard the sonic bird scarers don't work brilliantly with crows as they don't hear that frequency of sound well. Thanks
We've learned to live with them to an extent, but the numbers are growing and the nuisance is noise and mess- not just droppings but they leave an Unbelievable mess from the nest building. Am happy to wait until the nesting season is past but any ideas on how to prevent them Nesting again in future? Not keen to lop our trees down tbh from The environmental perspective
I suspect CDs in the trees once this year's fledglings have gone may be your best (and possibly only legal) bet, but whether that's practicable in the very tall tress that crows prefer, I don't know. Maybe contact the RSPB or local wildlife trust for advice?
