Do jackdaws nest in the winter, or are they looking for somewhere to spend winter comfortably?

I had a squirrel run right past me the other day. Husband and son were working the other side of the y ...

The buzzards seemed to be very active low down today. Saw a couple gliding through the woods. They seem quite good at maneuvering round trees. There are rather fewer leaves on the tops of the trees no ...

Good news you got the money at last Gregotyn. It sounds as if it is worthwhile shopping locally, especially at the moment. Perhaps go into Welshpool if you need several things other than food. I have ...

Some really good pictures there, and pleasant on the whole too.

I have been keeping my stocks quite high, not for Covid 19, but for possible consequences of Brexit. When I do the shopping, I tend to add an extra tin or two. I was thinking perhaps I should add some ...

Very nice. If that is a new stove, they suggest a small fire to begin with to cure the paint off properly. It will smell horrid at first, but the smell fades after a few days.

When we were out and about the other day we saw two. The buzzards in the woods do a pretty good job of clearing up, to say nothing of badgers and foxes. Son once filched a daft pheasant that had broke ...

If you can get onto the Forestry Commission website it will give you details but checking on the Welsh forestry site you will need a licence unless you are felling less than five cubic metres in a cal ...

Sad it got one of your smaller birds, but amazing you got the pictures. Looking at that I am wondering whether the bird I saw daring the cars over a kill it was eating in the middle of the road was a ...

As far as I know they are not fed; I haven't heard of any feeding programmes anyway. We have plenty of buzzards and in many ways the kite has a similar, although I believe slightly more active, lifest ...

We found that that the robins either copied each other or one taught the others. They decided the peanut feeder was a good source of food, but don't naturally cling to things like tits do, but one lea ...

Postcrete is a lot quicker, but as you say, the hand mix is cheaper and gives you more time for adjustment. I would use some of the stones you got out.

Hope you get a good price for it.

As for swimming, at least you can swim. It is something I have never really mastered, although I could probably stay afloat if I really had to. Somehow I seem to ...
