Grass developed to deter birds

At airports throughout the world and within this country, a new grass is being trialled to stop bird activity.

This involves planting a specially developed grass which grows dense and spiky, making it unattractive to birds both large and small.

A trial has shown more than a 50% reduction in bird activity in one year at Jersey Airport and has been given the name of Clear Sky; not prophetic I hope.
