Hi everyone,
Just thought I'd let you know I'm still here. I've been on call the last week so haven't been around much - been a busy one this time.

Seems to be a lot of discussion about foxes and spiders at present - I thought for one minute that I was on the BBC wildlife website when I first logged on.

Highlight of my week? One of my ducks escaped from the new run I built for them - spent an hour yesterday afternoon chasing a Muscovy duck round next door's back garden - good exercise, but not as much fun as you would imagine.

Anything goes on Tumbleweed Paul. Did you realize how it would take off when you started it?

My Muscovy is bigger than any fox - his hobby is killing rats, and he is very good at it Smile
