I have little doubt that those 'explosions' are someone's attempt at trying to get rid of the birds. I have heard them occasionally from Bugden Av for a number of years, sometimes 3 times in a week, but then won't hear any for the next 6 months.
It certainly does scare the birds who scatter loudly throughout Fadden and Gowrie, sometimes going over Wanniassa Hills, but they always come back later at night or at least the following day. Any reasonable person would soon realise that it is much quieter just leaving them alone, or just give up their fruitless attempts of trying to get rid of them.
