Dove, that Hellebore is lovely and I don't usually like doubles.

Dove, I think I'm hooked; have downloaded plans for bird boxes. Bird B&B will hopefully be up and running soon

I compost everything I can fit in the 2 bins and then each Autumn I have to take about 20 sacks to re-cycling, which gets turned into compost by the Council. Would love a shredder, but no room for more compost bins

Between Great Ouse and the Nene, surrounded by canals, but near the Gravel bank pumping station.

If I put up several boxes with different size openings for different birds, how far apart should they be? Should they go on the back of the studio facing North, though there is a strong security light there which responds to movement; on the East side is a lean to greenhouse which might confuse the birds. If placed in a tree, how to fasten them there without using screws?

Thank you Clarington, there is one more high tide tonight, but there is no way the water is coming this far inland I think (no thanks to the info supplied by the Environment Agency whose web site was virtually down yesterday due to volume, I guess, of people trying to get access!) A pity government organisations never seem to get the IT thing right.

Thanks Dove; it's been a long night, praying that we don't get flooded

It's a bit late, as far as I can see, the objections had to be registered by Dec 4th.
