    That figures. All the birdies collecting and concentrating wool and hair and larvae into a nest acting as a grain store.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    I take the fluff out of the tumble dryer and hang it in a bush. When I clean out the bird boxes in winter the nests are often lined with this.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    The reserve I'm based at is in the middle of nowhere but we still find quantities of dog hair in the boxes.

    But how many dog walkers do you get?
    On the reserve of course, I don't expect walkers being jammed into bird boxes. Unless you are in Suffolk and they have been cut up into little pieces.

    Quite a few, but the birds must be diving on the dogs and grabbing handfuls, judging by the amounts found. The shutdown means I miss out on one of the fun bits of this time of year - separating fighting swans. Always good for a laugh.

    How about one of those elevated mesh 'platforms' like at the Cambridge Tramshed. Interesting to walk on.

    Tortoise broke his fast today after his long winter sleep. Banana and Dandelion flowers. He is a messy eater.

    We use them as catch nets under rigging in some installations. Not easy to stretch unless you have some serious truss or a building......preferably a building, to attach it to
