Re: nature notes

I have several "fancy" bird baths in my garden, all except the one I brought with me were used as holders for wire baskets of flowers! If any of them have water in them , the birds use them. Much safer for them ere than a plant saucer on the ground, Mischief would think I'd found a new way of servin...

Re: Poultry mite invasion in my garden and house

They might also be a type of Thrip which come in a variety of sizes and colours. The information is contradictory as some websites say they bite and others say they don't. Apparently they are actually testing to see if you are a plant rather than biting a human deliberately but I don't see that real...

Re: Poultry mite invasion in my garden and house

I was able to enlarge it a bit but still not big enough really to be able to tell what they are and there is no real sense of the scale. How wide is the piece of wood? If your neighbours had redmite is it worth asking them to come and have a look? Redmite are tiny, not much bigger than the full stop...

I had an Elephant Hawkmoth on an outside window sill last year. I had no idea what it was but the fuchsia pink on its' wings made it easy to identify.

Re: A new den

I thought it was illegal to trap foxes and relocate them to another area, but according to the guidance here that is not the case. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/foxes-moles-and-mink-how-to-protect-your-property-from-damage It is a government website so one hopes they have it right, although it only ap...

Re: Wedding Vows

Glad they were bi-lingual BYM. Someone I know of, who only spoke English, had to learn his wedding vows parrot fashion. Some time afterwards he said he didn't know whether he was married or not as he had no idea what he'd said. I'm a very strong supporter of the right to use the Welsh language but t...

Re: Hen and chicks video

Re: Wedding Vows

Many more people do it now Hen-Gen as fewer marriage ceremonies take place in either churches or registry offices. Changing times mean that people want to express themselves differently, but whatever one says, one has to mean it and not unilaterally decide that it's time for a different model ...
