Hi Sal   There's a blip on the forum that means some people aren't getting alerts to replies - it's on the web-team's To Do list, but it's a long list

As soon as I typed that OH was an hour late I heard his key in the door    Now he's full of beef stew and dumplings and I've done the washing up even tho it was his turn - he's on the sofa with a glass of wine and an edition of 1982 TOTP on the telly.

Verdun - glad to hear your mum's feeling brighter.  As for the mistake -  you won't make it next time

Pdoc - glad you like your new greenhouses - they're on their way - we have a big ship here, we can load them up and send them up the coast to you .  Also, re the crayfish, I think you can get a licence to trap them - you do have a BBQ in your garden don't you

Lovely news about Matty's Tiny One

Those of you in windy areas - batten those hatches down and wear hard hats!

OH said he might be late back this evening - he's an hour late and supper's ready...

Hi Ben

My initial thought is that using flash for night time photography would disturb the animals and consequentally the results would not be a true picture of what animals usually visit the garden.  Although more expensive, I think that a night-vision camera would be much better.

Mine has been very unhappy since I retired and have had the heating on in the daytime during the colder weather.  They prefer it cooler.  I shall have to toughen up!
