How To Fend Off Attacking Birds

Hooray for the BBC for telling us what to do:
“angry blackbirds could be deterred by a direct stare.”
really? you try that one out and let me know how it goes…
“More radical suggestions aimed at fending off the swooping attackers have included mimicking the sound of a barking dog or even imitating a larger bird.”
sounds like a plan.
“Spread your arms and advance on him,” one e-mail advisory suggested. “His pattern recognition will kick in making you look like a dangerous predator, such as a hawk.”
Another correspondent suggested cyclists should install baskets on their bikes with a cat inside. “Or better yet, wear an oversized helmet with a trap-door with a stealth cat inside.”
does this mean that we should be worried?
