Onopordum, Ian says you've got it   He's done some googling of French sites using your information and it looks as if that's the one - fascinating.

Ian has asked me to pass on his thanks to everyone

Pet Rabbit

Wonky hasn't confessed, but I'll tell all - her rabbit called Mouse (because he'd been the smallest of the litter when he was born) was regularly found curled up on her pillow next to her, both of them sound asleep, when I went to check on her in bed at night !!!

And Happy was a big buck Daddy Rabbit, who lived with the goat kids 'cos if we left him with the lady bunnies all the time ....... well!!!  Think we'd have had too many rabbits!!!

broad bean problem

I agree - that's what they do - the beans come along after the flowers have dropped.  Broad beans can be quite thirsty at this stage, so if you've not had any rain in the past few days you could give them a drink

Securing an unstable dry stone wall?

They'll be Tree Bees - they're not aggressive but they always have a few 'sentries' dancing outside the entrance - but if you ignore them they'll ignore you. Our neighbours have had several nests on their property and they've caused no  trouble.  They're gardeners' friends because they're wonderful pollinators and especially like daisy-like flowers. 

In the autumn the workers and the drones will die and the queens will fly off and hibernate until next spring, so your nest box will be empty by the winter.
