They've pecked holes through the "anti crow" mesh sheet, and into the plastic. Going to be a lot of waste when we peel it back.

How can I stop it happening again?

Put tyres on plastic, then "anti crow" sheet on top of tyres?

TIA

In the past we have tyred on the first net then laid another net over the top of the tyres.

I thought it was kinda the idea too put the mesh sheet over the top of the tyres anyways so they can’t land on it?

What part of the country are you in ?

seen this a lot this year and a few people have solved the issue by using Moist Citrus pulp instead of plastic sheet. People have been doing it for donkeys years

We've taken to lowering the secure cover down over the front of the face as soon as we've finished mixing. Much less damage on the face. Scarecrow equipped with "guns" but you need a couple and move them. We have about 400 crows that live here now. They took a field of winter beans as well.
