Ummmmmmmmm! It's not only farmers who use slug pellets. Hands up those on this board who use them. Yes, I thought so!
The blackbirds will be arriving from Scandanavia soon, followed by the redwings and fieldfares. There are so many berries this year, I'm not sure they'll get to us in the far west.
There was a thrush sitting on the wheelbarrow earlier this week, and plenty of evidence they have been busy cracking snails around the garden.
