Tesco criticised for anti-swallow netting

Still Waters

A supermarket has been criticised on social media for putting up netting to stop swallows from nesting.

Tesco erected the nets above its trolley park at its Ipswich Road store in Norwich after complaints about bird droppings on the trolleys.

Concerns have been expressed that the migratory birds will get caught in the mesh and die, and the move has been branded unacceptable by many.

Tesco should have consulted experts before doing anything, even though it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that netting could endanger the lives of these, and other, birds. Boarding would have been a simpler and safer option, but they clearly wanted to get rid of the birds altogether from that area.

Concidering the mess some of the shoppers leave lying around supermarkets and the amount of parents i see letting their children drop sweet packets, i think the real issue is not the birds, but the filthy humans.

Surely Tesco could wipe the birds poo off themselves while they are out there cleaning up after the shoppers who can not be bothered to walk to a bin.
