Shoppers have been reassured that netting being put up in a supermarket poses no danger to rare birds.
Pest controllers have been installing plastic netting at Tesco on Victoria Road in Diss prompting concerns from people about the impact on birds.
But the store chain as reassured customers that there is no evidence of rare birds nesting there and it is to keep pigeons out of the roof.
Amongst those who raised the issue was Trish O'Neil who said: 'What is this netting used for anyway? With bird numbers in serious decline the use of this netting is absolutely abhorrent.'
It follows an outcry in Norwich when the Tesco store at Harford Bridge erected netting to stop swallows from nesting. Dozens of people, including TV presenter Jake Humphrey, complained.
