It may not yet be on the scale of the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock horror movie The Birds but I am reliably informed Moseley Ashfield Cricket Club's problems with our feathered friends continue.
Ashfield groundsman Alan Thomas, aka The Welsh Wizard, not only has to deal with the crows I mentioned last week disrupting the John Bright Trophy at Britannic Park, Moseley.
At Ashfield's picturesque main ground off Yardley Wood Road, he has to endure a mob of some 30 Canada geese taking their offspring on route marches around the field as a change of scene from the nearby lake on the adjacent Moseley Golf Club course.
His attempts to solve the problem by hurling cricket stumps at the geese and setting his Jack Russell terrier Pipper on them have failed.
