Maybe you'll have babies in there in the spring Milky. Wouldn't that be wonderful.

10 Jan, 2009

Hi, thought I would share with you ... Lidl have a bird box on sale tomorrow and a robin nest box at £4.88 each along with seed and peanut feeders for something like £1.65. Bargain or what?

Ohh thanks Dawn , we have a Lidl just up the road , I will pop in soon as I can ............

13 Jan, 2009

 

Ours is 20 miles away..so its out with the wood,hammer and nails lol

13 Jan, 2009

 

Sorry Amy, just thought, on sale Thursday - was a day ahead of myself! You can check their website. Not really worth building yourself at that price I wouldnt have thought.

13 Jan, 2009

 

Noooo Dawn !

Ha ha BB - I just can't ask my John to do any bird box building at the mo - he's got to set a 50 foot long hedge when it arrives, I daren't ask him! So, I'll have to go to Lidl or risk divorce, ha ha.

Thanks for letting me know Dawn , we did get two nice new ones the other week , they were on offer at a garden centre £9.99 each if you bought one you had one free , so thats about the same really :o)

We have made some before BB , it,s fun to do something like that and very rewarding when a little bird chooses your very own box to set up home in :o)

I'm interesting in the robin boxes.

Yes Dawn , you must save hubby,s strength for the big jobs , I think I saved to many big jobs for my hubby he is recovering from a Hernia operation that he had xmas week ... lol ...no thats not funny is it !
What kind of hedging are you having ?

13 Jan, 2009

 

Yes Amy, I need his strength, I stack the jobs up for him that I can't manage! Hope your husband is OK after the Hernia op, poor him. I guess he will have lots of jobs waiting for him for when he's recovered, bless.
We're setting a beech hedge.

I have loads of jobs waiting it has been so hard not being able to ask him to help me , it makes you realise how difficult it would be if you were on your own !

I love a beech hedge , lucky you !

13 Jan, 2009

 

I know Amy, I always think that, some jobs are just too heavy. Yes, I've always wanted a beech hedge but I've been impatient in the past and wanted something instant. Should be good for the birds too for nesting and then of course the beech nuts.

Clever photo.
Well done :o)
