Interesting ‘stuff’

    I thought it might be a good idea if I bit the bullet and just started a Thread dedicated to (what I hope is) general ‘Interesting Stuff’ that doesn’t fit under other existing Threads, rather than keep hijacking the existing ones (as I am want to do at an appalling rate.  Sorry).

    Fulfilling an earlier promise, here is a quick bit of poetry first:

    They say the sea is cold, but the sea contains
    the hottest blood of all, and the wildest, the most urgent.

    (‘Whales Weep Not’ by D. H. Lawrence)

    Yeah Thanks kezo for the reply, I’ve ordered a net should’ve here on the next day delivery, going to use that at the moment, however my Son will make a good thick wire type guard..

    Have a look on YouTube how crafty Herons are, I know I’ve lost a pond full of fish to them, however see them in action is amazing..

    Oh and the old decoy plastic Heron thing don’t seem to work after watch the vids..

    kezo the food banks do quite well from as as if we buy the 3 for 2 items we will throw in the 3rd or even both depending on the item, and our use..

    However we will be doing a good extra donation as I’m a man of my word.. 👍

    20 years of a pond this is the 2nd for a total wipe out, not to bad really..

    @ajn we normally give a neighbour the extra one from 3 for 2 and she takes it to the local church foodbank

    Never had a pond I always fear they will attract frogs or toads and I don’t like (petrified of) them and I seem to scream and dance like a woman has seen a mouse. Shhhhh dont tell anyone that 🙂

    Wow what a coincidence kezo, spent the last few hours bringing back a battered frog from a bashing from a magpie, looked out could see a magpie pecking and dragging something, turned out to be a frog..

    Took a hell of a beating, however placed it to the side in a net, hour or so it came around, swam back in 😳..

    My mind jumped to conclusions and I thought you were going to say chip shop 🙂

    Poor thing, bloody magpies are a nuisance, however as much as I don’t like them I’m glad its OK.

    Might make it kezo, I usually hear them doing that weird noise they do from about 8pm & through the night, nice sometimes knowing it’s not just me wide awake at night 🙂..

    Might have another plant identification later if your interested, see if I can find out what it is before rattling your brain though..

    Suppose it gives you something to listen to rather than lying awake in silence. I often struggle to sleep and like to get up and stare into the sky. Ive always said I would get a telescope but never got round to it.

    No problem put a picture up and we will see if we can work it out 🙂

    It certainly threw me. One minute we were talking frogs then all of a sudden azalea’s. I was beginning to think my medication was sending me cuckoo, although I don’t need medication for that to happen 🙂

    Interested to hear that your clever fake-bloke keeps the herons away. But the tank? Surely a bit over the top… Reckon a simple 88 anti-aircraft flak gun would do the job…

    Easier to get in and out of garden than a tank 🙂
