just wondering where all the blackbirds have gone,

strange scrapy-type holes in lawn.

Posted: 21/09/2012 at 16:51

it could be foxes as they like worms but it might be a badger as they like looking for worms on the lawn look for where a Badger might have come in usually barging its way through the fence or how long the claws are.

Companions in the wildlife garden

I have a lot of wildlife too in my area which is Bristol.Not only foxes,badgers,squirrels,rats,mice,frogs,newts the list could go on including deer! The birds we get are amazing even Herons and buzzards.For a city its pretty amazing how it all survives.I lived in the country and I did not see half as much.I still go to the country every week and on horseback I get close to the deer and their young as they don't see  me as threat.We need all wildlife,we are the intruders ,not them.I find great joy from watching those special moments.

tidy up sweet wiliams

to be  truthful its just better to take the seeds and sow now for next year.I have just planted out new sweet Williams sown recently .collect the seed on a dry day and sow and plant out.pull the straggle ones and discard.

What to do with a bucket of snails!!

Posted: 18/09/2012 at 18:48

depending on your view with a bucket full of snails and slugs,kill them with boiling water then feed to the birds.Parcel them off to the rubbish tip,throw them over the fence ,set them free to live their lives munching on your plants  there is never one answer to slugs and snails.

ID help please
