It's quite odd, there's a lot elsewhere of interest for them. But for some reason they uprooted 6ft of hedge over winter. I placed some larger rocks over the base of the hedge and had no disturbances all winter.
Since mulching, and adding six new young trees to the row, they took an immediate interest. And have oddly ventured further into the garden. So perhaps the mulch attracts worms or contained worms or just a difference was enough to spike their interest.
Rather annoyingly they've blasted away my hopes of turning a section of wasteland into a little veg garden. But perhaps, electric fencing and chicken wire could be enough to make it a nuisance for them.
A set near by had previously been dormant. But it looks as if they've moved back in. Obviously they must like what I'm doing!
Funny really, I'd planted wild pear, pretty much for wild life. And rather ironically they've come a little early.
NOT IN MY BACK YARD!
