    Anyone for golf

    Not seen any teeth marks, but your right they could be picking them up from someone's garden, nearest golf course is at least 4 or 5 miles away.

    Ladybirds

    I haven't been in the garden of late due to health. I am constantly gathering up tiny baby Ladybugs that have hatched out in the seals of my double glazing.

    Stung by a huge Queen bumble bee

    I think that slugs and snails just rasp with their radula and can't bite. Been bitten by the occasional spider and also a centipede between the fingers which did hurt as well as being a surprise.

    Please identify this animal or bird by its voice. Fox? Parakeet?

    I knew that's what you meant Wee Tam but I was slow in working out the association. :biggrin:
