Ah, so now the dangers of living next to a pond become apparent. Whilst the 2-tier lake at Heronbank/Lakeside can be attractive – a) at night b) if you like brown – and provides a habitat for a variety of water foul, it is not only these aforementioned birds that are producing offspring at the moment.
Last night, my kitchen and room became infested with a multitude of wing-Úd beasts. Presumably they don't carry any form of tropical malady, but to be on the safe side (And because they irrate me no end), Caroline and I (Along with our Wind Orchestra guests last night) set to with a rolled up Torygraph – quite possibly the best thing for it.
Now, their bluey-green bodies are smeared across my walls and ceilings – some looking quite spectacular, others looking like scientific specimens, with their legs all neatly arranged for inspection.
Perhaps buying some Raid would be easier…
