Fancy that! Maybe we could get our birds to weed our garden? If we ever get any birds again, that is!
In France they have trained Rooks to clear up litter in a Park. What a brilliant idea. This is how it works –
The rooks at the Puy du Fou theme park in the west of the country have been taught to collect cigarette ends and other small bits of rubbish.
They then deposit the litter into a small box which will deliver some bird food as a reward for their hard work.
I’m impressed. Maybe Rooks will be put to work everywhere? When they get politically motivated, they’ll be forming ‘bird unions’ so they can go on strike for better ‘wages’.
