IRIS visits Bickley Hall Farm, in Malpas (England)

Tags : 

The IRIS team visited the second scheduled area on the trip to the UK, the Bickley Hall Farm, in Malpas, south of Liverpool.

On October 24, they met in the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) with the project manager, Martin Sharp. After a productive meeting, in which part of the work was analysed and the following steps were planned, IRIS left Liverpool and went to Malpas.

On October 25, Jennifer Sneddon accompanied IRIS through Bickley Hall farm and explained them the work areas, the farm characteristics and the existing limitations.

During the day there were two flights (morning and afternoon). In each of them, the two parcels between which the laser is permutated were flown over. The limited opening and closing hours of the farm (09:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), made it impossible to carry out flights before dawn and after sunset.

The flights were repeated the next day, this time in the company of Eduardo Cordova, employee of Liverpool John Moores University. All flights were carried out with maximum safety, reusing the flight criteria defined in Scotland.

He made a poster session for attendees with the presentation on their successful user experience story of bird repelling. Moreover, he pointed out that there is a possibility of repelling mammals with lasers and that Bird Control Group is involved in EU LIFE Laser Fence project, which is helping to study the effectiveness of laser beams on these animals. The attendants of the trade show were interested in the results of this project and how it can impact pest control optimization in near future.
