Coppice update

After the horrendous journey home yesterday evening, I awoke this morning at 5.20, took one look out of the window and decided I was not going to attempt the 70 mile journey to Nottingham.Nothing hurting at work, or at least nothing that one of the more local lads coudn't deal with. Took the opport...

The Coppice

I have decided that the woodland I now have sole access to, will be known as The Coppice ;) After carrying out the initial set up on Friday, I spent a couple of hours there yesterday, freezing my proverbials off. I just stood and watched and realised that there is a tad of fine tuning needed. T...

At last

After a few years of fruitless investigation, I finally found out who owns 40 acres of mixed woodland, not more than 15 minutes drive from home. A few things to finalise, but it seems that I am going to be allowed to have sole use of said woods to set up a feeding station. After spending a long ti...

Common sense

Went to work and bought some painkillers.Pain/throbbing appeared to have abated.However driving home from work(I was in Derby last week) pain/throbbing returned so during a per...

The ratter

I was disturbed early Wednesday evening by a constant Miaow,miaow coming from the kitchen. I thought who has brought the remains of what in now :) To my surprise,what was staring up at me from the kitchen floor was a Woodmouse. More surprising it had been brought in by McKenzie,the only one of ou...

Guilty

Prior to my last bevvy of uploads which commenced on Saturday I hadn't uploaded for a month. Nowt to do with the site,just to busy with work etc;.

A result

Without naming the local authority concerned I managed last Thursday to prevent a wilderness of a garden being cut down until the Dunnocks have bred. It amazes me how so little of the law,that pertains to wildlife is known. When you start quoting it chapter and verse to someone who is totally igno...

A peaceful morning

The bonus was spotting a Whitethroat so he's on the list for the next visit. Also the Ye...
