    Pigeon spikes! It will be a pain removing the dead ones, but it'll work. Get pigeon spikes.

    As sassie implies, bird litter tray. Would have thought it would be obvious actually.

    Wire it to the mains.......
    For a short while they might still poo as they lose control of all bodily functions, but the rest will soon notice the dead ones and stear clear!

    Shoot them ?

    I have heard that they are afraid of silver foil, they put it on top of caravans to deter them......... small strips of bright coloured plastic or ribbon that will move in the wind could do it as they do that on seed patches.

    put a scarecrow on top of your roof

    Fasten a bird feeder to your neighbours aerial, they will be happier there then!

    You're not allowed to if they are pelicans or swans, not worth the risk of shooting the wrong species.

    Bird litter tray, all good pet shops have them.

    Definitely the bird litter tray. It will also be a great ice breaker and talking point for the summer's BBQ's.

    now thats what I call detached... if thats to scale (and theres no reason why it shouldnt be, there aint no other gaffe in a 15 mile radius! - Also if enough birds sat on that ariel it would topple over, in effect its a cantilever beam

    Can I also state that from the image you bird shats like a rabbit, I blame global warming!
