Believe it or not, it’s (d).

Tina Turner’s voice is more effective in scaring birds from Gloucestershire airport’s landing strips than special cassettes of bird distress calls, airport chief fire officer Ron Johnson told The Times newspaper.

“We used to broadcast tapes with birds’ distress sounds, but we found they don’t work very well — and what the birds really hate is Tina Turner,” Johnson said.
