Scarecrow 180° is a fully automatic, standalone, random play system that is able to work without human intervention. It can be powered from 15v DC (100v/250) ac mains power, leisure battery, or solar power.
There is a built in key pad to control the settings on the system, and it has an optional security pin access feature for additional safety. It is fitted with a built-in adjustable light sensor and includes 10 standard distress calls.
Scarecrow 180° provides 180° dispersal for use in a wide range of diverse locations, and when coupled with a Scarecrow "slave" unit creates a system that provides 360° dispersal. This can be mounted on a 1m or 2m pole that sits on a base.
The Scarecrow 180° has 3 built-in speakers, the Scarecrow 360° system a combined total of 6 build-in speakers, and by using variable volume and alternation between the speakers creates a natural perception of predator movement.
System includes: Main unit, Power Supply (mains / battery), U clamp for pole mounting
Controls: Key pad control for Power on / off, volume up / down, light sensor, re-enforce and severe broadcasting, and distress call selection
Distress Calls: 10 standard calls: Herring Gull, Black Headed Gull, Starling, Rook, Crow, Pigeon, Jackdaw, Canada Goose 1 & 2, Birds of Prey (Call exchanges available)
Power Requirements: 12-15vdc, 100-250vac (12v 80Ah Leisure Battery), or solar power (Solar powering this requires the purchase of our Solar Option)
Dimensions: 340 x 220 x 250mm
Mounting Bracket: 50mm U Clamp for mounting on scaffold pole, or units can be wall mounted
IP Rating: IP55
Audio Output Power: 25 watts
Effective Operating Distance: The Scarecrow 180° can cover up to 20,000sq metres (dependent on wind direction and ambient conditions). When adding the "slave" unit to create the Scarecrow 360° system, this increases to up to 40,000 sq. metres.

I have starlings in my feed passage ways, will this work?
YES! In our experience Starlings are very effectively deterred. Additionally Starlings are very unhappy in the presence of Rooks & Crows, & Seagulls. By using randomised Rooks, Crows, Seagulls & Birds of Prey distress calls also proves highly effective against Starlings.
Is effective against Pigeons on Oilseed Rape?
Scarecrow is very effective against Pigeons in a wide range of Environments & has deterred Pigeons up to 1½ miles. However it is important to read the instructions. Adding in the randomised Rook & Crow calls can be even more effective.
How about Rooks & Crows?
Certainly we have had many good reports of deterrent effect in a wide range of circumstances - such as discouraging Crows pecking plastic at Silage Clamps, OR knocking down Cereal crops near to Harvest.
Will Birds become ‘immune’ to the bird scarer?
Birds recognise their distress calls at volumes they are accustomed to producing. Follow the instructions. Set volume at minimum level & gradually increase to most effective level, mainly between 2-3. It is better to ‘randomise’ other distress calls with your intended targets than increase volume.
Can a Scarecrow be supplied with both Mains & Battery Leads?
