Compost again

No expert. Urine is sterile when it leaves the body, and is a good source of nitrogen which acts as an activator for the bacteria and fungi that are needed to decompose plant material and make compost. It is also known as universal household activator, or in doves case, recycled beer and cider. It's a lot cheaper than garotta. Bob Flowerdew recommends it all the time. You can also use fresh grass cuttings, mixed in with chunky woodier stuff.

Jamie Olivers new book has a recipe for Rotolo. You bake the thing whole in the oven while you're doing something else, scrape out the flesh , and use pasta sheets and a tomato sauce.

It will slow down in winter anyway. I use  neat urine. It costs nothing and works just as well.

We have a tit gang that all turn up together. Blue tits, coal tits, great tits and long tailed tits, all seem to fly around as a group. Unlike the greenfinches , who argue with any other bird in the vicinity of the feeders, and are being picked off one by one, by the sparrowhawk,

We do get a lot of long tailed tits, and  that is the only nest of that type we have found in the garden. They usually spend a lot of time on the feeders.

 Thanks everyone.
