To calm down shoppers and minimise the chances of anyone fighting in the car park?

I think it is something to do with monitoring how long you are parked in the car park ,apparently you are allowed 2 hours parking go over that and you get a ticket from the contractor who monitors the parking.Ie as you enter the entrance your car is picked up by electronics,could this create the bird like noises,thats my theroy.

I've seen a fight in Tesco car park between two middle aged men who came to blows over a trolley. It was quite funny. Never heard the fake bird song though.

I think its more to do with "The perfect image" Mary poppins syndrome!!

They also pump out smells around the supermarket to make you buy more... ie Bread, washing powder, fresh coffee, roast chickens.......... you didn't seriously think that bread was baking all day every day did you!!

They want to be careful. There could be terrible consiquences if they ended up at the hot chicken counter by mistake.

The speakers aren't put there by tesco. They were put there by an evil bird seed company that want to brain wash us into buying mass amounts of seed to feed the birds in the garden, who in turn will get fatter and fatter until they take over the World!!!!!..........................Well thats what i think anyway

Probably played to keep other birds away as bird poop corrodes car paint and they probably don't want people sueing them for it. There are actually a lot of real birds round there, if you get the tram you can hear real ones singing as you walk over.
