We first carried this blog in April 2011, unfortunately the farmer concerned ( apparently a close associate of Marco Cereste - as Marco is a Stanground councillor perhaps he can have a conversation with his friend? ) seems to have increased the frequency of the bangs and they are starting earlier in the morning. If you are being disturbed and your animals frightened call Police on 101
The series of loud bangs we all have all been experiencing on Park Farm for the last few years are 'double bang gas gun bird scarer' set up by the farmer on Drysides to scare pigeons. It seems that the device is set to go off just as dawn breaks and the well drilled pigeons are lining up for breakfast on the newly sown crop, but we understand the Farmer can also set a secondary time delay and has now agreed to set the bangs for after 7am.
There are other scarers on the market but not nearly so effective and within a few weeks, the farmer claims that his entire seed bank could be effectively eaten by the pigeon community. If residents are still inconvenienced by the noise, we can make further representations.
