Serious bird feeder question!

Posted: 25/07/2015 at 11:02

The cage sort I stopped using when I found a baby squirrel inside one.

The ones to hang off a wall, I use a squirrel buster. The feeding perches are on a spring, so anything heavy shuts the ports. 

For the bird table, I have a conical squirrel baffle that they bang their heads on while shinning up the pole.

OH pronounced courgetti Bolognese a success. Thats good because the courgettes have gone crazy. 

Sunny here, we didnt get enough rain to wet anything other than leaves. Under the oak is still bone dry and cracking.

I might do a day trip to Bressingham on Monday, I will have to use my car as OH is working. That should limit my spending.

Wyevale garden centre near me has reduced all bananas f rom 15 quid to 5

I bought one last year reduced like this. I overwintered it in the greenhouse, potted it on in the spring. It is now huge.

You will need somewhere frost free to overwinter it. 

How do I get rid of earwigs?

Try rolled up corrugated cardboard, placed in strategic points. Leave overnight.  They hide in the ridges. In the morning drop the whole thing in a metal bucket or incinerator and set fire to it.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
