Okay, this'll be my last post on this subject as there are still no prints in the sand trap nor berries scattered around? So whatever it was has decided to move on, very curious. Thanks for your interest.

The "voting" only started after the 10th nominee was introduced & finished minutes before the "decision" was announced. So total voting time was approx. 50mins.

@Dovefomabove, thanks for the link, mystery sorted. I love the tweet from his, (Murray) sponsors Adidas. They posted a snap of Andy with the caption:  ‘Not bad for a man with no personality.’

Hi all,  Can anyone explain to a simple soul as I, how the powers that be at the good ol' BBC knew to have the award ready to present to Andy Murray who was in Miami? whilst everyone else was in Leeds. 

Okay, he might have been an odds on favourite, (not in my book) but just imagine how much egg on faces had the public voted otherwise, which is how it is supposed to work. It looks to me very much like the Strictly Come Dancing charade (No, I don't watch it) where they pretend the Sunday show is live & have the audience change places & the "stars" change their attire, whilst talking about "last nights show" blah blah blah. What a sham. Or am I seriously missing summat!!!

Cheers (tongue in cheek)

No news on the footprint trap. Not surprised really, the cupboard, ooops sorry, the bush is almost bare. Another mystery, can anyone explain why the notifier isn't working?

We've only seen squirrel in the garden. I've laid a footprint pad with a layer of sand, hopefully that should give us a clue to what/who the culprit is. Whatever it is, it likes a nice flat area to eat/store them rather than on the shale. Watch this space.

Removing privet hedge

Posted: 14/12/2013 at 08:03

My next door neighbour & I removed our past it's sell-by-date privet using a short scaffolding pole!! Knock the pole into the soil as far as is possible, at least 2 feet & if possible a reasonable distance from the hedge, we managed at around 8 feet, fasten a rope round a section of the hedge as close to the soil as possible, then using a pair of stilsons, (we drilled a hole in the tube & inserted a bar) take a few turns of the rope round the pole & start to turn as a Capston works. My neighbour took up the rope as I simply turned the pole, bingo, out came the hedge a section at a time.

Hi, sorry for the late reply, but the "instant notifier email" hasn't worked. Yes it's a Snowberry, dunno where I got Black Phoebe from, (senior moment) I really can't see them being blown into a neat pile & none end up in the pond. Something is definitely moving them. The 1st pic is before a pile was formed, as I didn't move them after moving them when they first appeared. The 2nd pic shows an almost bare bush. PS The culprit isn't the tortoise next to the pond!
