Pic & Article - ugly "Anti-Bird Spikes" on trees - England

This is NOT FAKE news - strange as it sounds - some people have put ugly "Anti-bird spikes" on the branches of trees !

The pic with the following article will shock many people ! 

However, if you look carefully, you will see that not all the branches are covered with the anti-bird spikes.  So perhaps birds can still sit on the other branches. 

Maybe the anti-bird spikes would be less ugly if the spikes were coloured green &/or brown to better blend in with the branches/leaves - sort of camouflage coloured.
