Birch trees are lovely in summer, but when the leaves fall in autumn a real pain to clear up!

"mine are in Spain spending my inheritance!)" I hope you meant that jokingly! I presume they worked for their money so why shouldn't they enjoy spending it?

TT, I think learning to say no comes with a certain age, when you're young you want to please everyone, the older you get the easier it becomes to be selfish and look after No. 1!

spam issues

I've only ever had normal-sized text when writing, at the same time as others have complained about small writing. Maybe it's not the fault of the site but the fault of the computer, iPad, tablet it's being written on.

Agree about the spam.

Very often they nest in cow sheds and such where there is lots of coming and going, I don't think it bothers them too much. If they are breeding now, let them get it over with and try and cover the hole later in the year. Perhaps you could put some chicken wire over it.
