Jamie Fox, who recently finished a degree in music at Bangor University, uses a ukulele, accordion and cowbell to frighten away partridges.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Fox will earn £250 a week patrolling the ten-acre field, wearing a bright orange coat and playing his musical instruments.
His employer William Youngs said he resorted to employing a human scarecrow after birds in his oilseed rape field were not put off by more traditional methods of scaring them off.
Youngs said: "The only way to get rid of them is to walk down the field and push them off," adding: "Jamie's doing a good job. You can really see the difference."
Fox added that he is more than happy with the role, saying: "I get to sit and read for a lot of the time but whenever I see the partridges, I have to get up and scare them off.
"The farmer said to me, 'Bring a deckchair and a good book'. A couple of my friends in busier, more generously-paid jobs, are slightly envious."
