Norm,

 

Sounds like your are dressed for the dance and don't have anyone to take.  In Feb. 2017 you were down to one hedgehog and apparently one fox.  What the 'ell?

 

How are this years Newts?

:clap3: Newts are OK but I've given up breeding to repopulate ponds as the ponds keep getting filled in and the price of daphnia has gone through the roof so I encourage mosquitos to lay their eggs in bowls of stagnant water, seems to be working. Got 2 hogs at moment, lost one last week, probably the fox.  :nono:

Norm,

 

I believe in my 80 odd years you are the first I've known to encourage the mossies to breed.

:clap3: I needed their larvae to feed the newt tadpoles as the nearest place I can get daphnia is 10 miles away now and it's over a £1 a bag. We don't have malaria or Zika virus here so apart from itchy bites the parents are harmless. As I am no longer stocking ponds, apart from a separate pond for GCN's the main pond will have to fend for itself. Times are hard for us pensioners. :bye2:

biggrin.png Now up to 3 or 4 hogs but lost one to next doors rat trap, took it to vets but didn't make it. I can't believe anyone would put rat traps in the open. When I was doing conservation/pest control I either put poison underground or traps in boxes with small entrance holes, not baited in the open. ohmy.png

Norm,

 

Perhaps the "rat trap" wasn't intended to catch rats.

mad.gif I did think that but better not as it would create an atmosphere with my neighbours. I just can't believe that anybody would put a baited rat trap in the open, it could catch birds as well and is probably illegal. mad.gif
