Up in the woods yesterday our robin came to see us. The one with the white on it is the same one that comes round the shed. Also heard owls calling and there are a number of cock pheasants. One or two ...

Apart from their setts, badgers also dig outliers, which are inhabited during the spring and summer. We think these might be for displaced badgers when there are cubs in the main sett, as we have seen ...

I think you would have to read up on the breeding habits of rabbits. Afraid it is not a thing I have ever studied. Scrub clearance does seem the best first step, and keep it cleared until rabbits are ...

We have wrens in the garden. Seldom seen, but hear the song quite often. To me it is like an explosion of singing. We have too many pigeons, have had either a goldcrest or firecrest sat on my lap in t ...

Had a robin perching on a heap of pallets yesterday that posed for pictures. Not the one that is round our shelter as this one had white on its breast and under its wing. Also a wren hopping around in ...

You can actually make flexible ones with bark. Western red cedar, lime bast are both used to make flexible items. I have seen a pair of shoes made of cedar bark, and lime is used for chair seats.

I wasn't aware of that. A recipe for disaster. It happened when I was at school, and think I was rather taken up with school work etc. at the time.

Clearing scrub from the site will make it less rabbit friendly and make it easier for predators to keep them under control. If you are able to fence, once fairly well cleared, a 'one way' exit may hel ...

I remember the Aberfan disaster. Absolutely awful. Sadly, in the past, things weren't cleared up or even left in a safe state. A number of Victorian household books even tell you how to check if your ...

Thanks. We don't have flares from the wells round here, just nodding donkeys. I assume from that there will be little methane, but what there is will just expand as the oil is removed?

Thanks Shane. Yes, of course methane and other gases can get out far more easily than liquids, but I assumed that there was very little methane in the 'pumped' wells.

Dpack, that is not all of it. ...

Do all wells have bottomhole pressure Shane? We have an oil field under us, but it needs to be pumped out, so assume that there is little pressure.

I believe they need open ground with good cover for nesting and thicket stage scrub is preferred habitat. Not sure if we have them. I tend not to go to the most likely areas during the evening, and do ...
