Default Sparrowhawks.

Hi all,
I read in this forum some time ago that one way to keep sparrowhawks out of one's garden was to hang CDs up around the garden, we're being pestered by a female sparrowhawk who has already conducted a series of successful raids on 'our' birds and we desperately want to stop her. Can anyone advise us as to the best places to hang the CDs, or should we just hang them randomly around the garden. I'd also be grateful if anyone could explain how/why this works.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jimbo

I think it is hard to stop nature doing its thing, and I would not interfer on any level

Birds are well versed to protect themselves from predators, and that is how it is, and they know it

Hopefully you understand that cannot change nature as it has been around a lot longer than we have a humans - they are the experts to survive
