I paid about £100 for the bat detector, there are cheaper ones though. This was a "Magenta" and I bought it directly from the makers. They've got them for about £60 now and they sometimes turn up on ebay. They are great fun and pick up all sorts of things that you wouldn't think of, like tyre punctures! They also pick up cricket and grasshopper songs, which is great as it means my husband can hear these things again for the first time in years (he can't hear them normally).

You're right about peanuts and badgers, but they also seem quite happy with leftover bread soaked in water, parmesan rind and spaghetti :lol:

I once saw a man on tv feed poppadums to his badgers! :lol:

Our foxes love peanuts and often look up at the bird feeders at them! They also love biscuits and eggs. Its funny if go to make a cup of tea in the kitchen ( at night ) and look out of the garden door window Fred is just standing there like a pet dog! wating for someone to give him something, hes quite tame :lol:

We once had a kestrel land in the garden after my mum chucked out some mince meat to attract some seagulls; we didn't expect that!

Hey Dave, are you sure you weigh what you weigh? I recon your scales (the weighing type, not the musical type!) are wonky, you look pretty trim to me.

hiya all

Dave, feel free to post one of those pics of us you took last time we met.. I don't have anything recent to post on this computer :wink: It's good to put faces to names. Have liked seeing all the pics of various pets. I'd love to have chickens, we have a big garden they'd love, but I work with bird viruses, so I've signed a bit of paper to say I won't have them :(

But we do still have 2 dogs, a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs..

So how is everyone doing? I did a spinning class last night.. nearly died! :shock:

Didn't realise that I stick my tongue out when I play.. :shock: I'll have to watch that!!

Had my lesson today - went well I think. Doing F major and D minor scales.. fun !! And I've graduated from a couple of pieces that I've been working on, which is always good :D
