that is not quite what i meant, it would be a novel training technique, if a bit harsh.

the big chap at the back does not want to go to those places

that was what i meant

other wildlife examples are available

at the mo the towny pigeons are feeding, they do have some style with wing tip strikes at high speed, the pecking stuff is amateur

i am trying to make them polite to each other while dining, a paddington type stare has been deployed a few times

A very hot day here again yesterday and the silver washed fritillaries and ringlets were very much in evidence along the ride in the woods. I haven't had a chance to go out into the coppice coup, but think that might be full of butterflies at the moment.

bird town news

mr brack has been very busy shopping
plenty of fledged sparrows and some still nested
towny pigeons, not quite learning manners but improving
woodies fine

oops, i was doing shower hosepipe hung in the bramble, young sparrow made an unfortunate choice of landing twig about 6 inches under it
it was fine if a little surprised

Four quill pigs dispatched so far, kale decimated again night before last and trap ignored. Hoping to located #5 soon, so that we may have hopes of continuing to eat the greens of my labors

that seems like infestation rather than acceptable wildlife

the wee thing surprised me a bit with its table manners, it chose a table and was very determined to stick its "feeding tube" into lunch

it could have gone for more ripe, that is what it chose

friendly, or it ignored me

dinner took about 20 mins, it got quite mr creosote after it connected the tube, the abdomen might have doubled in girth

it was nice to watch a vegan one although the hunters are quite fun
