These past few days I have been fed up of rooks getting some of the bird food I put out.
To outwit them I put some grated and cheese on the ground in the hedgerow in our garden. I have seen this part of the hedge bottom being used by blackbirds. They seem to use it as a ‘hedgeway road’ into our garden as I see them walk into the garden there. Does that make sense?
I was only there one minute and I quickly threw some birdfood and cheese into the hedgebottom.
Within a minute 6 or 7 rooks descended from the sky to this exact same place and ravenously ate all the bird food! I have never ever seen rooks in this hedge bottom before.
They must have been watching me from their treetop perches. They must connect me with birdfood!
