The Scatterbird MK4 is the next generation of gas powered bird scarers. Like it’s predecessor, the Scatterbird MK4 is a sturdy, purpose built bird scaring gas gun designed specifically to meet the needs of the farmer. The Scatterbird range has for many years set the industry standard for durability.

The newly designed Scatterbird Mark 4 incorporates many innovative features, including the use of UV stabilised, impact resistant polypropylene for the casing, and improved performance with the added feature of controlling the Scatterbird MK4 by Bluetooth from an iOS or Android smart device. A superb all-weather piece of equipment, the Scatterbird MK4 provides excellent value for money and uniquely high performance.

To operate the Scatterbird MK4 you will require a 12 volt battery and a cylinder of propane gas (any size of propane cylinder is suitable for use). Use of an optional internal 12 volt battery (not included) is recommended to keep the wiring away from vermin and prevent flood damage to the battery and wiring.

Scatterbird App

The Scatterbird App provides an easy way of programming the Scatterbird MK4 in the comfort of your home, then sending the program to the birdscarer by Bluetooth when close to the unit at a later time.

The Scatterbird Mark 4 bird scaring gas gun features a sophisticated, flexible, yet simple to operate control system allowing you to programme the frequency of the bangs and the interval between them. The Scatterbird can be set for an automatic start at dawn and an automatic shutoff at dusk. The bangs can be pre-set at precise intervals or a random pattern can be easily selected.

The Scatterbird App allows the user to:

  • Store programs to be used as and when desired by simply selecting the program and sending to the Scatterbird.
  • Change different variables – number of bangs, interval between bangs or operating times.
  • Have the same program or a different program for each day. Included in this is the ability to have no operation during some days at all if wanted.
  • Control multiple Scatterbirds by choosing which one to communicate with at any time.
