Bird Scarers

North Luffenham Parish Council has received complaints that on two occasions bird scarers have been used in Ancaster Way apparently to scare away the starlings in the laurel bushes.

It is considered a criminal offence to set off fireworks in the street or other public places without permission.

Bird scarers are very loud as their purpose is to scare away birds from farm crops and in an urban setting are a nuisance and in particular cause upset to the elderly.

The Parish Council is working with Rutland County Council to try and alleviate the problem that the starlings are causing.
