    Ocassinally two squirrels would appear in Annie's garden, about four month back we started feeding them, got a two litre lemonade bottle, cut a hole near the bottom, bit of string round the neck and suspended it in the garden about six inches of the ground, squirrels there every day when we put nuts in it, great fun watching them get them out,,, then about two weeks ago they dissapear,,, squirrel pie somewhere ...

    Cats frequent Annie's garden as well (messy feckers), squirrels seem scared of them, so could the cats have got them...

    On the subject of cat shit, cats seem to think Annie's garden is a toilet, seem to collect there to shit, and this was before we started feeding the squirrels, size of the turds you'd have thought a heard of elephants had passed through, bought anti cat shit stuff, about a fiver a packet, each packet treated a garden the size of Annie's twice, think the feckers were feeding on the stuff, no difference,,, then someone told Annie sprinkle lemon skin gratings over the garden, so about a quid for a pack of five we try it, seems to work, not perfect but a hell of a lot better, than the five quid stuff, have also tried pepper, that done nothing, any other fixes...

    Try the lemon thing Dermo, what we were told to do was get rid of all the cat shit as that attracts them, grate the lemon skin and sprinkle on grass and flower beds, what I also do is chop and liquidate the rest of the lemons in some water, then with a watering can I spray that over the stone chipping patio bit of her garden as they were shitting on there as well, been doing this for just over a month now, first week I done it every second day as we had been doing with the packet stuff, during that week shit appeared twice, that would have been normal for one night, shit was removed immediately, after a week cats stopped shitting in the garden on a regular basis, it's happened twice since, what we've done each time is remove the shit immediately and do the lemon thing...

    PS, McQueen will love this, I also throw stones at them, not hit any yet but my aim is getting better...

    That was me and Kev looking for tit bits. Saw a coal tit in my garden, well I think it was a coal tit anyway, had a black head. Mainly crows round my way, good road kill territory. There must have been 300 of the buggers lined up on the electric wires down the lane where I walk the dog. Dont think he noticed them, he always has his nose on the ground tracking.
