    :) Hi all remember these little swirl coils , we have now found out what they are for , our new next door neighbour used to race pigeons , and when they flew home they didn't see the telephone cables and sometime flew into them , so our neighbour asked bt to do something about it , so they came and put these swirl coils on for him ......mystery now solved lol ;) image.jpg

    Hi Shelly, when I was skiing in Austria, the bars on the mountains had stickers of Hawks on the windows to stop birds flying into them..
