University graduate finds work as human scarecrow

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-norfolk-19846642

Bangor University graduate Jamie Fox has to do it in all weathers, as a human scarecrow in a field in Norfolk. Mr Fox has been employed to scare partridges from a field of oilseed rape [canola] at Aylsham because conventional birdscarers have not worked.

As well as wearing a bright orange coat, Mr Fox uses an accordion and a cowbell to frighten the birds.
