Graduate finds work as human scarecrow

19 posts in this topic

t sounds like the ideal job - the chance to sit down, read a book and perhaps idly strum a ukulele.

But Bangor University graduate Jamie Fox has to do it in all weathers, as a human scarecrow in a field in Norfolk.

Mr Fox, 22, has been employed to scare partridges from a field of oilseed rape at Aylsham because conventional birdscarers have not worked.

As well as wearing a bright orange coat, Mr Fox uses an accordion and a cowbell to frighten the birds.

Sounds like a good gig, unless someone decides to make a crop circle on top of you.

I wonder if he takes a packed lunch with him. He better watch out if he does, that'll attract the birds :D

He should try playing the bagpipes! Now that would just about scare every living thing within earshot!

Halloween will be here soon. A scarecrow coming to life suddenly really scares the neighborhood kids.

""Partridges love rape - it's like fillet steak to them"

Not in my neighbourhood. There'd be straw and teeth strewn across the street. Poor scarecrow.
