Do you have old, out-of-shape pigeon decoys? Do you have anything even vaguely crow-shaped you can use instead? You can use it to make your own crow decoy, says our viewer Tim in Essex.

You need a black bin liner and black insulation tape. That’s the hard part.

Cover the decoy in the black plastic and tape at the pinch points – head, neck, breast and tail.

You will end up with a black pigeon shape with a lobster-style tail.

Trim the tail. Tim leaves a bit on the end to flick on the wind. Now you have to give it its distinctive long beak, which you do by winding the tape to create a beak.

That’s it. The birds will come flooding in 🙂
