Re: nature notes

I should think possum gloves count. Your geological formation being linked with the Appalachian mountains sounds more exciting than the line of flint in the chalk cliffs locally which is known as Whitakers 3 inch band and stretches right down to the chalk cliffs at Dover, I learnt that at school and...

Re: nature notes

Little Egrets breed in a chalk pit nature reserve in the middle of a housing estate by Lakeside shopping centre, we have several in our garden during the day from a local fishery that will no doubt be breeding soon. Great white Egrets are now breeding in Kent, Somerset, Essex and other places as wel...

Re: ?lice

Hi Christine, it doesn't sound like lice to me either, especially if you have had a look with a magnifying glass. Has someone been having a crafty peck at her head and tail area ? I assume all your other birds are healthy. I have never heard of any drop stuff you could put under their wing or anywhe...

Ospreys 2019

For all you Osprey fans out there. Maya the Rutland female battled through 50mph winds onto the nest at 10.39 am. Scared the living daylights out of the 2 Egyptian Geese on it.
Guess a few more aren't far behind. Osprey 30 with the tracker left Senegal on Monday.

Still have a prestige potato masher also, came from grandma's house, and the spatula and the other items that made the set.
Love the slow cooker, I just switch it on and leave it.

Re: Foxy Season!

Never eaten Canada Goose, but we do partake of the eggs. Our farm geese who live on the lake take to laying eggs here there and everywhere including in the Canada Goose nests, and on the manure heap ! The Canada Geese are much more tidy and professional about it. Does make a nice omelette a goose egg

Household bygones

Just been reading an article where people had been asked what item they missed most from yesteryear and would like to see brought back. Top of the list was Goblin teas made, followed by Belling bed warmer, which I remember my parents using for many a year. Spong mincer featured strongly as well. Mad...
