    Went up to the polytunnel today and there were 8 little holes pecked across the ridge line, each by where the hoop is. Anyone else have problems with birds peackig holes??? Been up 18months now and never seen any birds on it. Put the repair tape on each hole to fix it.

    Sounds like the plastic rubbing on the bar creating a hole. I protect mine with pipe insulation foam held on with cable ties.

    My b&b cattle man has had jackdaws pecking holes in his lambing polly tunnel. He started repairing with tape but I haven’t been back in it to see how he has got on since May. Apart from bird scaring measures I don’t see how you can stop them.
