Bird Scarers

Below is a direct link to the Bird Scarers Code of Practice.

Bird Scarer Code of Practice.

As a minimum, operators of bird scarers should:

  1. Place the scarer as far away from residential properties as possible, point them in the opposite direction and use baffles.

  2. Avoid using auditory scarers within 200m of sensitive buildings before 7am (or 6am if sunrise is earlier)

  3. Take note of the prevailing wind when siting scarers.

  4. Use reflective or absorbent baffles (e.g. straw bales) to concentrate the sound onto the field and away from neighbouring properties.

  5. Try not to use auditory scarers on a Sunday

If you are a farmer or landowner please register your bird scarer with the Council using the below form.  This is only a short form and the information would let us know where they are being used in the Breckland area, so that any issues can be resolved quickly and easily.
