London Luton Airport
“London Luton Airport has very ambitious wildlife strike hazard reduction targets; Scarecrow BIRD Tab has been instrumental in delivering an 80% reduction in airfield bird sightings and a resulting reduction in controllable species bird strikes of over 90%. BIRD Tab is robust, easy to use and being data driven it allows each bird controller to track performance against targets, identify the most effective means of dispersal for a particular species type and to quickly spot potential risks and emerging trends. As a management tool BIRD Tab is priceless.”
“We have been using four Scarecrow BIRD Tab systems as an integral part of our Wildlife Management System across the airport. The broadcast of bird distress calls is a useful method for dispersing birds alongside other methods adopted, and the logging of the data helps us to meet the requirements of both ICAO and airport auditors. At CPH we have found the use of reporting software an invaluable tool for analysing events which helps us to determine actions to take to mitigate bird strike risk. If we experience any difficulties or have questions, Scarecrow staff do all they can to ensure we receive a resolution at the earliest opportunity.”

“After experiencing bird related delays we decided to approach Scarecrow Bio-Acoustic Systems. We placed an order for a bespoke system that was tailored to our needs, the systems arrived shortly after and has been in place ever since. The aftersales service has been excellent and I’m pleased to say we made it through this year’s nesting season without any issues.”
“A wonderful and innovative solution to prevent a number of H&S and maintenance problems we had been facing at Ravensbourne. I am very happy with the results and would certainly recommend their services and indeed the bio-acoustic bird deterrent solution.”

“We have been using the Scarecrow Bird Dispersal Unit since 2013, we had a particular problem with the Canada Geese on the course disrupting play. After introducing the periodic use of the unit through our greenkeeping team we no longer have the problem. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Scarecrow unit to anyone having similar problems.”
"Without a doubt our Scarecrow 180 has worked. I have attached the thanks received by a number of boat owners on a pontoon that was being affected and they all corroborate the success. I think we will be ordering another unit now that word has got around that there is a system that works."
During trials of a 180 unit the customer requested feedback from some of the boat owners to justify purchasing their own system; here is a selection of comments he received:
"Without doubt a very significant improvement; I sincerely hope that you go ahead and purchase one."
"Yes I think this has made a big difference …. maybe also some do not feed bird signs along public walkway (as food such as bread is not good for any of the wildlife as you know)."
"Just to once again let you know that the Scarer seemed to be very successful. I would support the permanent installation of one!"

"ABEST being a professional supplier and service provider of Offshore Helideck lighting systems, our experience with Scarecrow Bird deterrent system has been extremely positive, particularly the quality of product and company willingness to supply a custom built system."
Wood Group PSN, Aberdeen
"Yes I would recommend the scarecrow system as over the years it has been very effective in keeping the helideck clear of seagulls, which prevents them roosting and messing the area. It has also reduced the amount of seagulls around the platform."
Fenland Farming Ltd
"The Scarecrow system has been effective in protecting our crops against the birds in the area. Having tried all other means of control, most of which only work for a short time, the scarecrow system continued to be effective for the whole of our growing season. I would happily recommend to others and will definitely purchase more units in the future."
