Complete with 25m (80ft) cables, two 30 watt speakers and separate control box, it runs off a 12v battery and costs £198.

The Millennium 32 bird-scarer is a bolt-on addition to a gas/electric birdscarer featuring five different sounds. Timed to play while gas builds up in the birdscarer chamber, it features a 10W speaker and costs £60. Both systems are waterproof (01969-622778).
