Letter: Aerial bombardment

Sir: Each year marks the fight between birds and myself for a share of my (or their) raspberry crop. Up till now I have erected defences of sticks and netting, which have proved as ineffective as the Maginot Line. The birds always outflanked me.

This year the problem is solved. I have left an extension speaker among the crop, playing Radio 3 from dawn till dusk. Result: no birds. What is it about this programme I so love that makes the birds so obviously dislike it?

Yours sincerely,
