I think climate change is a big factor in gardening these last few years and also the increase vegetable prices due to this and of course population explosion.I also think people could do more to grow their own fruit and veg(keep Hens) even in a small garden.I have saved a lot by growing my  own and eggs from my daughters hens.It is sad to see so many apple and pear trees laden with fruit that is wasted .

make sure you clear it out once in awhile as soil ,muck and midges will settle in it.So once in awhile at the beginning and end of season clean out .dont let the water stagnant.

its good that it does fly off as to keep it alert.The young ones are very vunerable because of their need to follow you when digging or poking about in the garden as this is what they use to do or what they do in the wilder places,following pigs or any annimal that is turning the soil so as they can take advantage of getting those worms.They are fearless  rather than friendly!
