wow this thread has got really exciting and a little bit wild.
Howie I'm ashamed of you, any more of this and you'll have to stand in the corner

speaking of rats - don't suppose east riding have any plans to cull the ones with wings - introduce a few peregrines - that would be good
there's a bird of prey centre opened a couple of miles from us apparently, perhaps if they stopped feeding them .. .. .. .. .. ..

Hi Twooks

Are you talking about the ones with wings in Hull City Centre? If so then that is Hull City Council and not East Riding Council.

If ok, to say on forum, where are you in ER?

Stop feed who........?

Cheers
Janet

no I'm talking about the $%£$&(()UCVR that are taking over the world. Apparently the wring necked dove [yeah - it's deliberate - it's what I want to do with them] is a rampant illegal immigrant, and now has reps in just about every country, wood pigeons have taken over a nearby Barn Owl nesting site. they make an awful racket, frighten off the other birds, and 5h1t everywhere.

jery - I live near Pocklington - also an immigrant but I got a visa [oh is a lanky] cos I've got relatives in Selby and used to go there for holidays as a kid [ exciting what] [incidentally, there's a continental market on there this Saturday]

Wow Twooks that was some rant, and I thought I was bad going on about my Roland rats!

I remember when I was little (a long time ago) the ring necked doves used to coo down our chimmy and drove us all mad.

I am also an imigrant to the East Riding and have my visa, I am a good Scottish lass who loves the East Riding and we have been made very welcome, which I cannot say the same about when we lived down South. London and Milton Keynes. No offence to any one that lives there, but we found it really unfriendly unlike the North.

Continental market was in Beverley last Sunday. Was ok, not very big, we bought some sausages, but a bit expensive. The regular market in Beverley on a Saturady is really good, has loads of local produce.

Pocklington is a lovely part of the world. (what does oh is a lanky mean?)

Looks like I have upset someone from Milton Keyes. We lived there for nearly 12 years and I hated everything about the place. The only good thing was the shops. This is only my personal experience.

I will however apologise if I have caused offence, but I do not think it is ok to make threats on a forum.

Janet,

Have you never heard of TIC?

It translates - tongue in cheek - and you certainly haven't caused offence.

Hi there

I am glad. I am new to going on a forum, but am learning they are a bit like email, that you can say one thing and it sounds like another!

Meant what I said about the shops in Milton Keynes they are mint as my son would say, but unfortunatly in all the years we lived there I really did not settle. But each to their own.

Cheers
Janet

Willan lake is looking good, we were there about a month ago or so. We were visiting friends and was impressed with everything they have put in for kids, glad to see they have refurbished the playground, a lot safer. Enjoyed watching the guys going round on that thing on the water and jumping over all the ramps. When my boys were little we used to go there a lot on our bikes to visit all the geese and get pecked by the swans!!!

However, was not impressed that you now have to pay for the parking!! Still that is Councils for you.. all over the land.

Still think the shops are mint through, I do miss that.

ok jery
a lanky - is a Lancastrian
a tyke - is a Yorkshireman
a wessie - is from West Yorkshire - and is a complete one off

lankies n tykes haven't hit it off for ohh over 500 nearly 600 years

[which is funny when you're neither and can just sit back n mix it ]

and southerners - uhh - well it's a bit of a movable line - to me it's really anyone south of a line from the humber to the dee. basically - the M62 altho I suppose we have to let Manchester in!

rats with wings or long furry grey tails - need to be culled.

Easy with that submit button Janet. sometimes you get a pause so try to resist the temptation to press again. Michele usually gets them in two at a time but four must be a record. Glad to see your getting on with Twooks, and if there,s anything you need to know regarding how the forum works then she,s the one to ask as she knows it inside out.

Hi all. Not done a runner, just been really really busy. First of all apologies yet again, not used to forums as I have never been on one before, Don't know how I pressed the button four times!!! Thank you all for your good thoughts.

Anyway update on my good friend Roland!

The good news is that yesterday Hubby and No 2 son cleared out the compost bin, (cost me £5 for number 2 son to do this, but bless him he did despite him nearly throwing up!!) and despite what the pest control officer told us there was no sign of them chewing up threw the bottom of the bin. You could see where they had been burrowing in the earth, but that was about it. Fingers crossed, we no longer have our visitors, but as regards that compost bin, it is gone!!!!! As even if they did not get into it is was obviously attracting them.

Am I one happy bunny or what!

Mel is going to have a interesting time when she gets back from her hols reading through all the posts! As I said before, and here I go again, apologies if I have hijacked this thread somewhat.

Cheers
Janet

You have,nt hijacked the thread at all Janet, in fact you are to be commended for keeping to the subject, something thats sadly lacking where a lot of other users are concerned.
Hopefully the removal of your compost bin will go a long way to solving your problem with the rats, but still a pity as as this form of recycling does wonders for both the enviroment and the garden as well, with this type of fertiliser never bettered when it comes to feeding the soil apart from horse droppings that is. (Droppings?. Getting really sophisticated these days Jan, and I put that down I put that down to mixing with all these educated folk on this forum.)

Howie, you are a Gentleman.

I agree about the compost bin as we have always tried to do our bit for the environment, but we just cannot welcome Roland and his friends. After saying that, we will still keep the scraps that would have gone in the compost bin but take them to the dump instead.

Horse droppings! Don't think horses have droppings! More like great big dumps!!!

I can remember years ago my Grandad collecting this from (cannot remember) might have been the rag and bone man or the police horses, there was alway a big issue about who had it, not like today where cars just drive through it! Where we live there are lots of horses but unfortunately no one wants to scoop up off the roads the little presents that they leave! Ah times gone by.....

You will be glad to hear that we have had no sightings of Roland and friends for a while now, and none of the bate has been taken. So looks like we have not caused any horrible deaths. I am not saying this lightly, as I love animals, but we just had to deal with what we had to deal with.

Cheers
Jante

Hi Michele

Dung it is, not droppings, and as I said great big dumps!!! Nothing wrong with scraping it of the road, unfortunaly where I live people are too posh to do that!!!

Only kidding so I don't offend anyone as I seem to do on a regualr basis!

Cheers
