Something that is relevant.......I did the RSPB Bird Survey two weeks ago and over the hour and on the first occasion only saw 2 Wood Pidgeons and a Feral Pidgeon and on the second occasion just the same feral Pidgeon again !

Last year it was wall to wall sparrows , robins . black birds . and starlings

B3...its annoying to have your lovely buds been eaten but at least you have Happy and Healthy Sparrows

I have some HH and its reached 5 foot tall which is OK as its for a wind break.

? Do I "prune " it like rasperberries  or just leave it to carry on

5 foot is tall enough

The trees are mature and have been there for years

Decking help - which boards and why!

At our allotment we have had to add non slip strips some 12 inches long as we have had several accidents

decking is a current fad and is prone to attracting rats as it provides shelter underneath espescially if there is a supply of water and food nearby
