Starting from number six there are five new photographs on the Photo Page.

FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS ALL TAKEN AT THE TROPICALBUTTERFLY HOUSE NEAR WORKSOp.LYNNE.

Here are some photos of Rosie who is a Tortie. She doesn’t look much like a Calico. What do you call this type in England please? Rosie’s Mum in Toronto.

The way that one of the Badgers was collecting bedding and taking it back to the Sett a couple of nights ago, I would reckon that one has given birth.

We tidied up the Island this afternoon and strimmed the grass back so that we will be able to see the Goose sitting her eggs. That is of course if they decide to nest on the Island. There is a chance that with the grass cut back they will not bother to nest on the Island. I don’t think that will be the case, although it may take them a couple of visits to get use to it. The Geese landed on the Lake this morning. The webcams were on when they flew in, their reflection being seen a long time in the Lake before they landed, They only stayed a little over an hour before flying off.

We altered the Bird feeders today in the hope that we can keep the Squirrels off. The Squirrels were taking over the Bird feeders. We have also put a Squirrel deterrent under the tray that the feeders are now on, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t find a way of getting to the Bird food.

The Squirrel feeder and obstacle course is in the Badger Field, so I guess if they cant get on to the Bird feeders they will go there. Most days the Squirrel are knocking the front of their feeder out causing all of their peanuts to finish up on the ground. I have got to put a different front onto the box, and try to put an addition to the course.

We are having a few problems with our broadband connections that is causing the webcams to go off intermittently. I have been trying to get it sorted out since Thursday. Unforetunately the initial contact is with an overseas call centre who are not opening another line of contact that will sort the problem out. I normally see that the webcams are off very quickly unless I have to go out.
