netting supplier needed

For those who chose netting to screen off their birds - Iím looking for a supplier of heavy duty durable large net sheets I can use over a polytunnel frame. Where do you get yours from online?

I can vouch for the debris netting because we've been using it as windbreak for 10 years now with no noticeable deterioration and it's very hot and sunny here at times. The green we originally used is rather annoyingly bright. We have since replaced some areas with black, which is a much better choice. Be aware that, although very strong, it will collect snow and collapse taking the sides of an enclosure with it, so it needs some central support or temporarily removing.

Tbh the vet who came to inspect my birds at the start of lockdown told me that netting wasn't good enough - they needed to be either inside a building or under an impermeable membrane eg tarpaulin, the idea being that wild bird droppings can't get through.
If you are looking for netting for lockdown purposes there is a light at the end of the tunnel - restrictions should be coming to an end soon. I am having a final inspection on Monday prior to restrictions being lifted.
