phoning a 0344. number

Alan - it's 18.9C here inland a bit and the washing on the line is nearly dry

Sorry

Try registering your phone with the Telephone Preference Service - you can do it online - it doesn't stop all the call, but it does stop a lot of them - and the ones that do phone, it quickly shuts them up if you tell them they're breaking the law by making marketing calls to a number registered with the TPS - some try to get round it by saying it's a survey - but I just tell them that I used to work in marketing and I know that surveys are carried out for marketing purposes.  I then go online and make a formal complaint.  They don't ring back

It looks quite a bit bigger than our wood mice.

No idea - it does look plump and rounder than wild mice, but that could be because of it's obviously luxurious diet.  I suppose that only DNA testing could give a decisive answer.

I wonder if it'll 'pair up' with a wild one

HELLO FORKERS!

I think I'd use SDK brushwood killer or similar.

I think I'd be looking for recommendations for a local gardening/odd job chap or chap-ess to get it clear between now and when you move in. 

Make sure they understand that you won't pay unless all roots are properly removed.  Also make sure that they know they must not use residual weedkillers as you want to grow things there.

Good luck - quite an adventure you've got ahead of you

Pheasants attack the plums

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 09:44

I agree - speak to the gamekeeper or farmer - he'll be wanting to keep the pheasants on his land, not have them wandering off in search of tasty morsels.  If he/she know's their job he/she'll alter the feeding stations/patterns to keep them away from your garden.

The pheasant shooting season starts at the end of the months, so pheasants will be a lot more wary then.

No partridges hiding in your pear tree I suppose?  The partridge season started this month
