There are also break back traps; if they are in your garden that will be fine as you have to inspect/reset most. One variety available are Karnia traps, but I have heard tell of one that releases and ...

Bats are a protected species, so if they ignored them or purposely destroyed a roost, the builders were in breach of the Habitat Regualations. A survey has to be carried out before building work on su ...

Very nice Sgt. Colon. You will have to train the vine to be somewhere in the greenhouse where it won't get in the way of the other plants. I have mine going up the back and along the point of the roof ...

That looks nice. As Dpack says, it would look good exposed, but as it is old it might do better with a suitable sealant. We haven't coated ours at all, but it is new, so the brick is in good condition ...

We did install our own, but many years ago. I think these days you are supposed to have it installed by someone with the right bits of paper, but make sure they really know what they are doing too as ...

Weird looking creature. Wasp mantisfly does seem a good name for it.

Dpack, you slow motion films will be fascinating I would think. Birds actually seem to adapt rather better than they are given ...

Those photos are a lot better; as you say, some of them very good. The one of the bird on the lens isn't the best picture in the world, but it makes everyone smile I think. The other plus is, seeing t ...
