Tagwex probably thinks I'm a wild boar anyway. Does he have a red waistcoat

I have all sorts of fine and fancy clothes, silk shirts and ties, cravats, dickie bows, two and three piece suits (including a red waistcoat), pure wool sweaters etc etc. But as we all know clothes don't make a fine man but they do make a fine man even finer as is the case here of course. You GG can stay shopping in Primark/Heatons!!!

Blackbirds destroyed my strawberry crop (only 45 plants) last summer literally in one day.

Luckily all my strawberries are either in the Polytunnel or a fruit cage

I built three cages, 9' * 9', last summer but not quickly enough. The worst of the damage had been done by then. Next summer we WILL have strawberries.

We covered ours with plastic netting and the blooming crows pecked through it. So now we've covered it with metal mesh. Quite an expensive job but at least it will stop them pecking through that hopefully
