Prune plums and other prunus in late June to avoid Silver Leaf infection.

Maybe install an electric fence for long enough for them to change their routine and go elsewhere to explore/hunt etc. 

I've not used this firm and have no connection with them - just found them on the internet as they give a good description of how the fences work and what is involved.

Hosta ((hugs))  my ex had similar experience - a couple of excruciating crippling episodes, nothing showed up on scans and nothing more for 30+ years - the medics reckoned he'd passed a couple of small stones/pieces of 'grit'.  He was told to keep his fluid intake up and that was it. 

We've had steady drizzle for the past hour ... son says it's been raining on the Suffolk coast all day.  Wonky starts her new job tomorrow ... just in time for the cold snap!
