Bird patrol acknowledged, but then radio contact was lost. The aircraft was subsequently vectored for the approach, when the aircraft was on final about 2nm before the runway threshold tower discovered that the bird patrol vehicle had entered the runway without clearance and could not be contacted so that tower instructed the aircraft to go around.
