Thank you everybody for you help i have tried chicken wire on soil however they just do it on the top without digging  

Goldstars, don't just lay it on top - do as I do and make a cloche shape or tunnel out of it , block the ends with boards and peg it down with tent pegs, they can't get in and neither than the birds who sometimes pull out or eat your seedlings.

Levi - this forum belongs to the Gardeners World magazine and is provided free for gardeners to seek and provide advice to each other.  The magazine's income comes solely from advertising so it is unfair if some businesses get their advertising free while others pay for it.

We all appreciate the forum being provided for us, so if someone tries to get some free advertising we let the Moderators know and they zap it.  Nothing to do with being a 'do gooder', just playing fair and appreciating the service GW provides. 

If we have received really good (or bad) service from a company, whether it's a seed company, nursery or some other type of supplier of gardening equipment, we let people know about it. 

But using it for free advertising really isn't on - hope you understand.

The burrowing mammals/ small rodents will be having a tough time of it on the Levels, and when they do badly so do the owls and the birds of prey

What an unpleasant post - and I think you probably mean 'fulfilled'.  

Raised Beds Cat Poop

My one and only raised bed is in the same condition Paul - I shall rake off the top couple of inches and bag and put the rakings in the bin.  

At this time of the year I'd be adding some more well rotted farm yard manure and some homemade compost to the bed and forking it in a bit anyway, so I'll just add a bit more.
