Beetroot and Water Voles--Keeping them away!

Posted: 14/01/2013 at 10:47

Water voles are very shy and small rare mammals (at Cheddar you can see them if your patient) and I doubt very much that they would of munched through your Beetroot,a much larger animal is likely ,one is my favorite culprit ,Rat,yes he loves veg and fruit and he is a lot bigger than a water vole,2nd culprit if its just tops is deer if your near open land,it could be anything from rabbit to fox,have a look at the signs about ,claw marks,foot prints etc and if there is evidence of stool markings or entry to garden,it is easy to blame the wrong culprit.

oh I do feel for you losing your horse,over the years I have had to say goodbye to many (horse mates).lena looks a little bit like Misty That I ride .I have known her for years and it will break my heart when she goes.Do get back on horse back and hack out ,its such a joy to ride and see the countryside and be in contact with a horse,its therapy for the soul.

small bird watch

I think its lovely to be able to Identify birds and to do this you need a good book but first it is often Identify the song/call of bird that will help you Identify a bird,yes its sounds odd ,but true,for instance if you know  the chiff-chaff has song that goes chiff caff etc when you do see it ,it is a small brownie /green bird which if you saw it first would think it to be a warbler.

I too like going to the Donkey sanctuary ,I have been going for a number of years and have seen it grow and the good work they do,not only for saving donkeys but in the riding for disabled.It is a great place to go to ,its free and there is a cafe and plenty of walks even down to the sea shore,wonderful wildlife here.We travel down on day trips or we stayed at Dunscombe caravan park,of course there is the walk to Branscombe and Beer.try it its worth it.
