Hi Nic

I have a picture of you in my head with strong coffee next to you whizzing through the videos like Abby on NCIS with her CafPow! Hope you’ve some new batteries to save your adrenaline for something else.

Put the camera out last night & rather hilariously it only recorded me walking away when I set it up then ran out of battery power & switched off. Have now inserted the new lithium ones & just placed it at the bottom of the garden, watched by Minx (our house cat). She was the one who spotted Harriet last year, wish she could spot her this year too.

Yes, it’s the semi rigid almost trellis clematis netting, very successful indeed, it’s at an angle so the holes are the right way up for birds to get in & out safely & they’ve really got the idea now. Dad used it on his bird feeder for years & it’s only now when there are so many bigger birds here that I’ve thought to copy him, saving me a small fortune in bird food & the bigger ones must be finding food elsewhere as not so many calling. Our Robin hangs on the fatball feeder, doesn’t look right somehow as I tend to associate them with ground feeding but he/she uses the other feeders too. Pigeon’s still around flapping round my head & knocking the food off the post I put out for him, the rest of them do a grand job of cleaning up the path under the feeders, not a speck of food left.

So glad Digger’s around, sounds very much as if she must be feeding hoglets doesn’t it unless she’s just trying to keep you guessing.

Let you know if we spot anybody on camera, would be so nice to see a healthy hedgehog trundling about again.
