And why do Starlings in a murmuration never collide?

'Cos they're talking to each other - a murmuration is so called because of the noise

I'm blaming you and all this cauli chat - I've just been to the farm shop and we're having cauliflower cheese for supper with our sausages

Can anyone ID please

It's a bit blurry ......... if I zoom right in I think I can see seedpods that look to me like  tiny violas but that may be because I've zoomed in so close - do they look like this?

 and then open up a bit like this?


Strange problem....

Hi Specklehen

It sounds like Oxalis corniculata - a right PITA - info here

Hope that helps

Strange problem....

Diblinschtat - made me laugh too - that too is something that happened occasionally in the old farmhouse where we lived - Pa taught us never to put our wellies on without tipping them upside down first. 

That's why one of these is such a useful item if you live in the countryside.

I think that's fox poo.  Foxes do vary in size - occasionally a big dog fox can be quite substantial.
