I felt quite sorry for him.

Just think - he might have thought it was the biggest ice lolly in Bristol.


Great picture Nick.


We had three squirrels squabling in the garden this morning as to who was the first one up the pole to eat the birds food.

Great shot.

We have put out some hanging peanuts in our garden for the wildlife. They have not been touched.

Re: Somebody Has Frozen My Drinking Water

Honestly folks, they may look cute, but you don't want these things hanging around your attic. We had a nest of them last year, I caught two of them, and we caught another one on the weekend with our trap in the attic.

Drove a few miles away (and across a river) and let the thing go in a field.

They are officially classed as vermin, and if you took one to the vet, they'd kill it.

Well - you should have maintained your roof properly.

Glad you, or perhaps Hannah, was soft enough to give it a second chance. By the way I gather domestic mice can find their way 'home' over a distance of several miles - checked your attic recently?

Re: Somebody Has Frozen My Drinking Water

Thing is, we only had the soffits and facia boards renewed in uPVC a year or so ago so I was extremely suprised that anything managed to get in there at all...!!

Hey John - You never lived in The Heath did you ... This sounds awfully like an old friend of mine who had a personal hate campaign going.

My only issue with the blighters is that they are always looking cute in the front garden when My camera is in the back of the house and vice versa !

I admired a picture like this this morning, but was not able to do it anything like justice and won't be posting the result - nice picture

Regards
Andy

Re: Somebody Has Frozen My Drinking Water

Hehe... no, not a hate campaign at all. I just don't like them wrecking suitcases and other stuff in my attic, and keeping the family awake at night.

If I hated them, I'd kill the blighters myself but I just couldn't do anything like that. Besides, after we caught it in a humane trap I took it to a safe place to let it go and not to the vets!!

Sorry to be picky, but this like some of your other pictures is (to me) spoiled a little by the red scrawl you use as an identifier that is a little out of focus or blurred and distracts more than simple text.

I understand why you put the text on and am merely suggesting a little less of whatever effect is over it to make it less distracting from what are obviously good pictures.

Regards
Andy

Thank you - It happens because I reduce for web - the words are clear on the original - the answer is of course to put it on the reduced shot - one more step to add to the process.
