    They wouldn't last 2 minutes on our road with the dickheads we get trying to break the land speed record before the T junction and it's not even a busy road, it's a quiet cul de sac. Several cats have been killed and just left by the side of the road including one of our neighbour's. So far our 2 have been OK as they are a bit jumpy about anything they don't know.

    Bob for Rent

    @RS2000 - may I please ask what Bob's rates are for Heron patrol and how quickly can you get him here?

    Yesterday morning whist doing my params, I looked up from my breakfast table to see a very unwelcome visitor down the garden behind my shed...

    Later that morning, after a number of fly-bys it was sat on my fence just behind my wishing well, doing a reccy...

    This morning, I got up about 6.30am to open my bedroom doors for the sunrise, and was shocked as the little blighter took flight before my eyes. I think it had been actually standing on the planted wall by the pond. I therefore got back into bed with the doors open wide whilst I dozed off again. About 30 mins later, I opened my eyes and there it was, bold as brass, strolling around on the lower patio...

    Grrrr! No point sending my two out to do guard duty, they'll just flop and roll at the first sign of trouble

    I donít get herons visit here any more. I think they must have meetings to pass on unfortunate experiences to each other.

    A decade or so ago in my goldfish/wildlife pond I had fishing line heron defences around the pond and was woken up by one of my kids telling me there was an albatross caught in the fence. Well, it wasnít an albatross haha. But I had to cut its legs free for it and it played dead in my hands. Stood in the bushes for around half an hour collecting its thoughts and regurgitated a frog and goldfish into the border before it flew off.
    Beautiful birds but they can go and look handsome someplace else
