No such luck - the nematodes are specific to their 'prey'.

The shard of glass has been located  ............ after I'd checked and washed down every piece of equipment, plant pot, jar of chillies, precious pebbles with holes in and the usual detritus of my kitchen I found it ..... in the drain-hole of the little sink in the middle of the worktop .... why didn't I look there in the first place .... except now I have a tidy and sparkling kitchen  .... except for the floor which I've not washed ..... yet.


Now it's time for another 


and I'd better write a shopping list of essentials ........ coffee, loo rolls ..........

Somewhere there's a mammal feeding its family .... just the way of things. 

Why have the bluetits attacked the wire of my nest cam?

Just because we provide them with 'ideal' nesting places, that doesn't remove their natural instinct which tells them to prepare the site.

You can't do anything - as Nut says, it's part of nature.


Also, it's against the law to interfere with nesting birds.


Maybe create more options for nest sites in future years?

Hosta - maybe the tits are busy incubating eggs?


LilyP - wasn't that Clarice posting last night?  It was good to see her - she'd not been around for a bit. 

Bird disease

Posted: Yesterday at 08:28

It's what is thought to have caused a severe decline in the greenfinch population in the UK in the recent past ........ I understand that numbers are now picking up as people are beginning to understand the importance of cleaning the birds feeders.  Certainly when we came here in 2011 we didn't see any greenfinches - last year we saw several - fingers are crossed.
