    This noise (not my recording) at the beginning of the video and 02:10 is the noise they're constantly making right outside my house from 0500 to 1900.



    Its like someone holding and squeezing a dogs chew toy right next to your ear nonstop.

    I can hear it over my headphones and even the ear plugs i tried on last Saturday morning.


    Any ideas on how to get rid of/deal with these things?

    I think the sparrow might be one of those invasive birds you can actually shoot... in the US though.

    If they're in the trees, a fake owl or predator bird could work, few different bird deterrent sites kicking about to get ideas from, I had ravens and blackbirds fighting on the roof tiles above the bedroom at 4am for months, their claws screaching down the tiles and the CAAAWWWW while they were fighting, I've got a hole in the bedroom slanted ceiling where I tried to scare them off with my fist

    Tried the shiny bird ribbon stuff that's mean to scare them, that didn't work, finally discovered the chimney pot was their nest, so had it filled and sealed off with a wire bird mesh (No fire in the house), and that got rid of them

    Get a pet falcon? Those critters are awesome! You could try the bread with poison trick though that might affect other birds.

    No need for poison ...

    There are much more humane methods, like some mentioned above.

    If you use poison you'll poison all the things in the area. Don't be a dick :)

    Thicker windows! I know there are loads of birds outside making a load of ruckus but I hear none of that because how this building is built.

    Bird spikes are really only designed for Pidgeons. Sparrows might find them cozy. Maybe like someone before said fake predatory bird out there might do the trick. Cats imo are a bad idea as they will hunt and kill everything.

    Pidgeons are annoying for sure with their coos :D Cuckoos even more so. We got all of the birds. Gladly the house is win.

    ultrasonic thing. Or double glaze the windows. Perspex secondary glazing works a treat, and is warmer in winter.

    Start crapping and yelling on the windowsill yourself, that'll show them birds!

    Black out curtains as well

    But yes, they'll be a protected species in Britain and killing them willingly could land you in trouble
