I think that I am feeding my birds too well.  I can't remember when I last saw one eating a slug or snail.  There have been a lot of them this year.  Tidying up one of my shrubs recently, I was amazed to find a tiny snail tucked into the centre of almost every leaf cluster.  There was no sign of nibbled leaves, though.  Is it a snail nursery, I wonder?  Unfortunately, I absolutely hate killing anything, and accidentally stepping on a slug or worm makes me feel really sick.  I've tried catching the pesky critters and dumping them on the common land opposite my house, but I think they come straight back again.
