Estate Management And So On [Oct. 27th, 2014|09:47 am]
Tony Grist
I walked round the fields to see if any of the trees had lost boughs to hurricane Gonzalo and none of them had- not even the ones that are half dead.

Earlier this year we had lots of blue tits coming to the feeders, now we're down to one or two. I'm thinking the older birds will have died out and the juveniles moved to find territories of their own. We're seeing quite a lot of starlings- which is, it seems, contrary to national trends. I saw a piece in the paper this morning which said that wildlife- and starlings in particular- are being killed off by Prozac leeching into the food chain.

The weather is remarkably mild. Ailz says night time temperatures are equivalent to the day time norm for October. I wear a cap to go out but I've not been bothering with a coat.

If you need more starlings, you have a huge off-site reservoir across the Atlantic. Please feel free to take as many as you need.

I'm pretty well provided for with starlings but it seems the country as a whole is running short.

Fancy boxing some up and sending them c/o David Cameron, 10 Downing St?

We never had the kind of estate you're managing right now, but when we lived in the 'burbs on 3/4 acre Roy used to walk around hopefully, chain saw in hand, looking for limbs to lop.

Starlings on Prozac. The mind boggles.
