Every morning around 0600 the bird scarers to protect the grapes start banging. They are some sort of automated and random explosive charge. A farmer told me that they are one of the methods (and an expensive one) used to protect the grapes. For people who live near them it must be quite unpleasant. Anyway I discovered what the curious object in the posting for Friday 22 February entitled Curious Object is a quieter bird scarer.
