Following the great progress of Alitex glasshouse in erecting the aluminium structure to vine house last week, our flock of parakeets not content with stripping all the seeds and berries from the garden decided to remove the sticky foam beading which sits underneath the glass. This beading is placed on the aluminium frame before the sections are erected.
During the weekend, the parakeets used the aluminium structure as a roost whilst assessing their attacking strategy on the sunflowers. In doing so it appears that they have also taken a fancy to the foam and spent their time tearing and removing 80% of the foam which was not held down by glazing. We have been finding the material deposited around the garden.
Vandalism from our green-feathered villains was not something that we had anticipated!
