thanks for your kind welcome Scottish :) my wife and i have learned loads in a very short space of time too, whether we can put it to use remains to be seen lol !!!??
Our gardens very much been left to itself as a wild area, as we are very "green eco wise" but natures going a bit ballistic now so maybe nows the time to organise some control ha ha!! My wife is adamant her policy being never remove anything that is wildlife friendly so its very much a hotpotch and its a case of view but dont touch.Like a bee she can appear from nowhere ;)
