Yes, I do try different methods. Foil strips, netting. Paper bags would disintegrate in wet weather amd stop ripening I think.
Blackbirds are lovely birds ....got crows too but not so keen on them. Not a bird expert by any means but lots of,little birds....tits, finches, sparrows etc ....have their home here.
Figs do like it easy. They will grow and grow However, WE like figs to have it hard.....restricted roots.......to,produce their fruit earlier. In pots they will need extra water though as Dove said
