    One time when I was turning a compost heap two shrews got into an old compost sack. The sack had been split lengthways and they were running from end to end, pausing only to shout and scream at each other as they passed in the middle. Very funny and endearing.

    Seeing another recently reminded me of these photos from April -

    I put chilli powder in the bird food back in April and that kept the squirrels away until last week. Another sprinkling of chilli powder and the squirrels have disappeared again.

    Hopefully the squirrels never get a taste for chilli ...

    No photos but I have Ravens flying into the garden in Cardiff this week, must be a couple of pairs of them. They're so noisy - makes a change from the buzzards, although they're still here too. The Ravens and the buzzards perch in a big ash tree that is quite close to the kitchen door. fascinating to watch them.
