Who can be making these tunnels

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 13:13

Probably a field vole or two

Their tunnels can be a nuisance, but they are the staple food of barn owls and kestrels - when there's a shortage of field voles in the winter the barn owls and kestrels starve.  

Hopefully your voles will form part of someone's lunch before long

Soft Verge

I don't think there's an inexpensive way to do it.  Lorries are very heavy and their wheels cut up most natural surfaces.

Perhaps an alternative would be to dig out a strip of the verge and fill it with gravel  and put a warning up that their wheels will sink if they go onto it.  You sometimes see that on the sides of roads.  But it would be a pretty major change and you'd probably need a JCB to do it.

He reappeared quite quickly Joyce - I didn't go in - I was right, the garden area and beyond was all trees!!!

We stopped off at Wrose and picked up a few essentials - beer, mushrooms, onions, sprouts and loo rolls - somehow a box of C*mas Crackers and a roll of 'festive' wrapping paper fell into the trolly 

By the way, your package went into today's post - 2nd class - so should be with you by the end of the week.

Apples have to be pollinated by other apples - and they must be from the right group - if you have a look at the link I posted, there's a button to click to give you a list of suitable pollinators.
