    What do you keep in your freezer?

    No not fossils Pete. Bone. But yeah in your circumstance it matters little and if it works for you then what i say is irrelevant pretty much lol.

    What do you keep in your freezer?

    For whatever reason I had to find out how to preserve but also clean a skull. Searching endless taxidermy forums the results were - boiling is fine if you don't care. However if you want a specimen or a good result that lasts for years and produces museum grade skulls - domestid Beatle. Look it...

    What do you keep in your freezer?

    No no no. Don't boil them heads and bleach. Omg. Boiling damages them. Can crack them and makes them brittle. Domestid Beatles will clean every last scrap and keep the nasal bones intact. Much more better. Or bucket of water and leave submerged. Every so often tip away and refill. Much gentler...

    A very worthwhile petition

    Is she dead? Sign that petition - yep - it's attempting to be sincere but it is blatantly obvious. I don't think it will be another diana day, I could be wrong but I very much doubt it. More like the scene out if Pirates of the Carribean after jack has gotten the imprint of the key from the...

    Height of Swarm

    Christ this pic loaded sideways. The trees look like Coastal cliff trees and it looked for a minute like the ladder was horizontal out over the cliff. I was like "this guy doesn't have b@lls he has bin bags and then some to shuffle out on that. Then I realised. Yup a fall from that height would...

    The legend of the riot dog

    Bl**dy brilliant. I love dogs and that dog is beautiful. Someone will rescue it now for sure. On a sadder note but no less a hero, Chris Hitchins has died. Passed away after a long battle with cancer.

    The fox has had my Quail

    Yep its obviously an issue. If thats how they are getting in. I'm assuming you have witnessed them getting over it this way. The only thing you could do is arch it outwards in case they are climbing it or make it higher, or tie plastic bottles along it to thwart their grip as these would roll as...

    The fox has had my Quail

    Controversially if I had chickens and a fox yaffled them all I would berate myself for being a poor keeper of livestock and endeavour to make my stock fencing suitable to the environment needed. Instead of forcing the environment to adapt around my wants and needs. More work in the beginning...

    magpie callers??

    Dunno Pete. The fish may well have died naturally as well yes. But this thing is bloody loud munching them and whilst it brings them out of the water to eat them it usually doesnt and eats them in the water so you see it and the fish flopping about as its munching and rolling them over. Its not...

    magpie callers??

    dont quote me lol. It looks like a water vole type thing. I'm not up on my voles lol. Its about the size of a mole. Bit smaller. Lives in the pond here. Its a very small pond. Bout 30 foot by 30 foot. But full of wildlife and it used to be full of goldfish. Even a dragonfly larvae will take on...

    magpie callers??

    My link was dated 2011 however its old legislation. I hear things all the time. Foxes need to die. Only feed worth giving to a fox is lead etc.... but rarely do I hear how they identified the exact culprit. Here a heron was blamed for taking the goldfish. So wires were put up. Still going. As...
