There’s something sinister about seeing an anti-pigeon spike in a tree. If birds are unwelcome in trees, where exactly are they welcome?

In the countryside?

Our ancient woodlands?

Amongst the UK’s forests, woods and trees? (As long as no vehicles are parked nearby!).

Or have changes in the wider countryside and intensive farming methods forced birds to seek refuge in our towns and cities? To live amongst us.

We’ve hit a new low, though, when we try to prevent birds from perching in trees.

What next?

A nest box with a trap door?
