    Hiya John or should that be FUNGI. Do you know of any way in which we can teach a sparrowhawk table manners? One of these beautiful birds is regularly using our green as a dining table and leaving feathers all over the place. They are a bugger to clear up.
    Would you mind if I sent you a short cine disc of our green so that you can see what’s what. It’s easier than trying to describe it.
    I asked my wife for an opinion and as frank as ever, she came up with the response “boring, but if John does say yes, at least he can fast forward it”
    Thanks, Rob. ps. I hate the sound of my voice!!!!

      Hi Rob
      Short of leaving oven ready sparrows out for him I don’t know what can be done about the feathers!
      I’ve replied to you by email about the movie!
