One for Suffs.

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I shall have to watch on Catch up. :D

Do you know about this website? https://www.hedgehogstreet.org/

Lots of info about how to help them
... linking up gardens so they can wander and ‘meet up’, how and what to feed them and how to make your garden wildlife friendly. Great site :tu:

I have concrete gravel boards at the base of most of my fencing ... it doesn't keep the rats out though :( ;) :rolleyes:

Concrete gravel boards have been cited as one of the causes of the decline of hedgehogs in the UK :(

Rats can climb fences ... I’ve seen them climb concrete block walls :evil:

I don't have gravel boards at the bottom of the garden, but in any case hogs would have a hard job climbing up into my garden from quite a drop down into the field at the bottom.

Yesterday I had a rat just climbing down from my wisteria !
