Wealthy Residents Install Spikes On Trees To Protect Their Cars From Bird Poo!
Residents in Bristol have caused outrage with wildlife campaigners, after installing anti-bird spikes in trees to prevent their droppings hitting their cars.
The residents in the exclusive area of Clifton have taken action against the birds, nailing bird spikes to trees in the front gardens of privately owned flats. Local campaigners have tried to take action against the spikes, however with the trees being on private land, there has been little the council or campaigners can do.

The spikes are often seen in shopping areas to prevent birds from resting and building nests in order to protect the public from their droppings. Residents in the flats said that the droppings had become a nuisance, causing damage to several of the residents' cars. Residents had previously installed wooden birds of prey in the trees to scare away the other birds, but this did not have the desire affect.
