what you find when out walking

Posted: 06/01/2013 at 14:21

When you are walking or driving in the countryside its always pleasant to come across something rare or unusual .I have come cross dead foxes,badgers ,rabbits etc as well as live ones,especially in those quite corners of nowhere .We once were walking on a very hot day with the dogs a collie and a black lab up through a wood at up cerne,this was a few years ago,it was boiling and the grass was really dry,the time being midday in summer.We came across a badger making his way up embankment unaware we there,a little later we were crossing a field and I looked to the left at what I thought was a black post which my husband was pointing to, in hushed voice saying he had seen it move,with that the head turned the eyes yellow with slits. looked at us,(good job it was a little way off) I indicated we better move slowly but with haste out of sight into the lane ,make what you will but I think it might of been  a big cat and not your domestic feline type,and I haven't seen anything like it since.

I live the south west and I have seen sweet peas in flower but I have to say I have not as many flowers as you out.you must be in the sheltered bit.

rat

Posted: 04/01/2013 at 15:41

oh dont get me going on the Rat ,My daughter is having problems with her Rat invasion due to the fact the of her chickens,even if the food is in metal container they come for the left overs ,and in my garden the Rat s come for anything edible ,bird seed to compost rubbish,that's why you have to be careful what you put out and leave out. the rats are getting resistant to the poison due to the bird food,( and has to be carefully controlled by the rodent man) and if you seen one rat you have a hundred,they don't come in singles.plus the problem I have is my neighbour will keep leaving off drain covers.you will never get get rid of them completely but they need to be kept in check.
