You do realise that's against the law, don't you.

Replied: 22nd Apr 2022 at 11:28

Posted by: Anne (4192) 


It is against the law IF the nest was INTENTIONALLY disturbed. However I should think this nest would have been abandoned and the bird flown long before the nest/eggs were discovered owing to the activity beforehand.

Many people are unaware of the legal protection that birds, their nests, eggs and young have and what action they can legally take. However, reckless building work, tree-felling or hedge-cutting at the height of the nesting season can leave people facing prosecution.

Anyone found guilty of an offence could be given a maximum penalty of six months' imprisonment and an unlimited fine, which can be imposed in respect of each bird, nest or egg affected.

Don't carry out any activity that will affect nesting birds in spring or summer when birds are nesting - even if it's just in your garden. Instead, plan work for times of the year when nests aren't in use.

From here

Three weeks ago I had three huge conifers taken down I know that in the past there have been wood pigeons nesting in them, before work commenced a thorough check was made as it was the nesting/ breeding season, all was well so work proceeded.

Tut tut tut Tom.

Everyone knows that you don’t do any heavy duty gardening at this time of the year in case it upsets our feathered friends

In light of this I think the very least you should do is now make a very generous donation to the RSPB on account of your negligence, haphazard and as some may say illegal actions

That reminds me of behind where Pat lived, there were some pens there, and a chap was living on there in a caravan, and it used to do Pats head in, because as fast as Pat locked the gates into the backs of the houses, the caravan man would be unlocking them and leaving them open.

What to do if you find an abandoned bird’s nest with eggs

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology suggests you follow the one month rule:

“The eggs of most birds will remain viable for up to two weeks after being laid even before they are incubated, so as a general rule, you should wait at least one month after the expected hatch date before concluding that a nest is abandoned.

David Attenborough, my a**e

To all the people from across the globe,this is what happens ( take note) when you haven't anything better to do with your hands or brain..Tom Plumb doesn't sit around waiting to pounce with witty remarks,but as soon as he comments on anything constructive,out they come with their so called witty comments..if only they could see what other readers see..childish playground remarks.
But still they go on regardless of what anybody think of them...if only they realised how unmanly they seem to the average female..we wouldn't care if they commented on anything constructive. but oh no it's just to see who can be the most sarcastic ..they mustn't have anything better to do which of course Tom has...so to you silly men take a lesson from .Tom and do something constructive.

Now and again there's a hoo-ha about it and they get banned, but bit by bit it returns. I suspect the bannermen are the same.

When I lived in London, I had foxes living in the garden.

It had been abandoned for some years prior to my clearing the 'jungle'. When I became aware of the foxes, I left a corner wild, so as they were not deprived of concealment.

I also had cats.

Either or both species must have done some quite complex territory marking. The demarcation line was not easily defined, nevertheless, every bit of garden was either cat space or fox space. Neither species bothered the other one.

This stuff works well, but aint cheap

I used to grow lots of strawberries, though I am progressively getting rid of my strawberry beds.

Once upon a time, I would wake to the sound of thrush's anvil: the birds hitting the snails against stones/ path etc to obtain their meal.

Alas, thrushes long gone for a few years now. Was getting massive losses to slugs and snails once thrushes no longer predating them. The Nemaslug was a lifesaver.

Ena: Nemaslug is brilliant, it has a short life, you have to use it immediately. I didn't know until recently that a good percentage of slugs live underground. They ate a new bunch of my mini phlox once and I couldn't see why they disappeared, it was because the barstewards were eating from underneath.

Anne, I guess that your problem is 'Spanish Bluebells': a real nuisance as it is almost impossible to lift them bowt missing bits which then go on to re-establish.

I have found 'Roundup' effective, but with a caveat.

The foliage is resistant to the stuff penetrating.
If you first smash up the foliage with a spade, and then apply Roundup, it will work, but will need to be done over more than just one season.

Replied: 27th Apr 2022 at 16:07

Posted by: Anne (4192) 

Thanks ena, not altogether sure which they are as I don’t give them a real chance to bloom. I pull the buds off so as to prevent them from seeding.
I will give your idea a go but will still need to dig the ones out which come up with/between plants.

Replied: 27th Apr 2022 at 17:09

Posted by: ena malcup (1547) 

You can get a Roundup gel applicator to use close to other plants.

Just don't get any in contact with wanted plants.

It is systemic and absorbed through foliage surfaces (or in this case smashed-up foliage). Microbial activity in soil quickly breaks it down. I have not known it to affect other close-by plants through the soil.

Tesco usually has it.

I normally use Gallup 360. It’s very good, also systemic action.

Both the same active ingredient: Glyphosate.

You probably already know this, but here goes:

The Spanish Bluebell will spread by seeding, but also by underground runners. Every bit of bulb, root and runner needs to be eliminated when you lift plant, or it will re-establish and spread.

Do not compost. Bulbs survive composting, and will be spread as a result. Burn them if pos.

Very tiny bulbs are viable, and tend to get left behind in soil when plants are lifted.

A lean, mean old aged pensioner pleasantly past the skinniness of youth actively going about his gardening duties as nature intended,
