wildlife in the city

Posted: 20/12/2012 at 15:21

I use to work many years ago in a very posh place on the Downs in Bristol,Here you were near woods,open ground and extensive grounds .The gardens in them selves were amazing and a lot of big trees and fancy borders were included.I worked the night shift and you would get if the windows were left open beautiful moths ,they were all sizes and colours and I have not seen any since.We also of course had owls and foxes and in the early hours of dawn we often saw deer on the lawn and nearer the house greenwood peckers with their young would pick at insects.All manner of garden birds and larger ones came here and just a little bit further over near gorge a rare bird of pray flies ,a peregrine I believe.Also one spotted the Heron heading towards the pond.There was a such a variety of wildlife that only could be seen and walking on the downs it self you find hollies and hawthorns and no end of different trees.I use to ride across the here when  a child but the stables are long gone and only the brave ride across here now as it is very busy area.

Thankyou for your advice,I the house is very damp on that side and it could well be they are sneaking in via open gap somewhere and just might try the salt thing.

Christmas Greetings

I saw on the common during the break in cold spell, a group of starlings having a lovely time in a deep puddle,they looked like they were really enjoying it,cold I would of thought but they must of longed to get rid of those mites.

slugs in the kitchen

They certainly had spots and greenish and they only liked the dog food,since bleaching and spraying(with the wrong thing) they have been very crafty and not appeared,and yes health and safety would of  closed me down,which is rather worth thinking about as going out to dine seems a good choice but of course I would be done by the R.S.P.C A for slugs,
