So you lure the birds to the garden and reduce you feed bill for cats and you have no rats or you have never seen rats in your garden.

Used to have rats until we got our second cat (the first doesn't hunt). Not seen a rat since.

Yeh, I hate it when they catch a bird. But, compared to all our neighbours, our garden is FULL of birds and every year there are more and more successful families of birdies. So I must be doing something right!

Tagwex - you are either telling porkies or you were at the wrong house!

Margo - I'd settle for A summer, let alone a good one!

Our camera bird box has new tennants, Blue Tits have started nesting. The camera is a little out of focus, but I daren't do anything about it now. Any stills I take are going to be a little fuzzy this year. But it will be better than last year when a sparrow pushed its way in, built a very untidy nest, then deserted it.

Tagwex - Miss Jean Brodie or the Dowager Duchess? Think very carefully before you answer! Laughing

Margo - Beautifully sunny here (at the moment) so I'm off to make the most of it!

Well I do dress a lot like her when I am in the garden. Any one of those characters would soon put you in your place

There isn't a woman alive that can put me in my place.
