When you consider the number of twigs and branches in your average tree how could anyone possibly put spikes on all or even half of the places a bird could perch on.

Thanks for the tips on twines as opposed to cable ties. Will mention to tree surgeon.

Wasn't proposing putting spikes on all the branches on my side. Just the ones the pigeons focus on.

Tarpaulin doesn't work as the trampoline has sides and when you try to pull it thought the door of the trampoline the birdpoop mixes with the rainwater and it's a total pain.

Love the idea of an Kite or Owl scarer - Thank you.

I think I will propose them to the neighbours first.

Thanks!

Have you not considered removal of the overhanging branches? As has been previously stated neither TPO or CA prevent work being undertaken on trees they just mean that approval from local authority needs to be provided prior to the work being undertaken.

@Raymilland: you're right.

So I have decided to offer the neighbour the choice of:
1. Falcon Kite
2. Spikes
3. Application to remove branches

Don't forget the noise at sunset also to disturb any possible use as a permanent roost. Kids are useful here!! :D
