Re: nature notes

BYM - that is the one I used! It was a bit off putting to start with because I couldn't understand what to do, and it seemed ever so technical, but then I got the hang of it and became quite awestruck with the amount of information on it, as I realised how many people around the world take the time ...

Re: Poultry mite invasion in my garden and house

I can see it, but its too small to be of any use I am afraid, although possibly this is because the mites are so small anyway that it will be hard to tell much unless they are magnified. From what you have said they don't sound like redmite, but I have no idea what the problem could be, and I hope y...

Re: nature notes

:shock: Must have been a slightly weird experience BYM! I have seen those mice in clothing things on antiques programmes. I was up very early this morning and threw open a window to hear a weird call. I knew it was a bird, although it sounded slightly mechanical. A cockeral was crowing in response. ...

Re: nature notes

Off on a slight tangent, this morning we cleared out our adega (where you make wine and store stuff, wood in our case). It's dark and cool, made of stone with an earth floor. My hand encountered something soft. Cue scream. I sent OH to investigate and when he brought it out into the daylight, it was...

Re: New Brexit stamps out tomorrow!

:D

Last week we had a Donald Trump egg. I opened a box of bought eggs, one had a small ginger feather stuck to the top. In a very grown up fashion I added a face to the shell and DT sat on the windowsill until this lunchtime when he was eaten....

Re: Fat balls

That's interesting, about the lack of wood pigeons. Both where my Mum lives and at our old house in the UK, we became overrun with the things, to the extent my Mum no longer puts food out but they are still the dominant species in her garden. At our house they became a real nuisance to some of neigh...
