Thank you fly.
I'm sure it was only a small place but have none of us as a family visiting there yet I know we did.

Does anyone else remember Ashover Zoo.
From what I remember it wasn't a large zoo.
No pictures of it anywhere?

we have had full grown and baby hedgehogs on our garden they have a taste for catfood, when we have left our door open we have had the come into the kitchen. when we have found them indoors we have taken them back out complete with a bowl of catfood.

No chance of that here.
We are going to bed when they are coming out  ;D

Yes they can shift - makes me wonder why so many get squashed on the road!

I don't normally see them unless I go up the garden in the evening, but can hear them.
They are always round the bottom of the bird feeder and of course they use their house for my food.

I do know they come down into the small Patio area near the house though as they have dug up my Primulas and flung them onto the path!! ----- Twice!!!

I've only ever spotted a Sparrow Hawk on the front hedge Haslander, I'm not keen on the Magpies coming ( although not spotted one yet this year ) on the back garden frightens the other birds.
I saw a Green Finch on top of  the feeding pole last week but not spotted it since.

Fly - it must be something in your feeder which is making that Pigeon Rampant.  ;D

The tree and bushes are now sheltering the hog house.

A neighbour spotted one in his garden towards the end of last summer so we began putting food out each evening.

This year we have two and we have bought a Hog House to stop the cats getting the hog food.

I had a very entertaining few minutes the other night when the outside sensor light had been activated to reveal both hogs on our lawn.
One was racing around the lawn at high speed whilst the other was snuffling round the bird ground feeder ( no doubt after meal worms )
Suddenly the one which was racing around charged up to the other and rammed it - before setting off again at speed round the garden.

I'm hoping they have babies!!

Does anyone else have a bird feeder and have noticed how suddenly the sky is full of busy birds gathering food.
After a long winter they are playing catch up I reckon.
I use a ground feeder and also have a stand with hanging feeders, all of which are now going down at an alarming rate.
Can't wait to see the fledges!!

no the incidents are not directly related, this incident was two years before the incidents involving the council security in the pavements however though it has never been officially stated there is a rather tenuous link, this is what I know, there used to be a security guard in Wilkos and when any shoplifting cases came over his radio he would chase around town in an attempt to involve himself in some way, as I understand it he got on his radio and stated quite wrongly that my disabled partner and special needs son were in Wilkos behaving suspiciously, we believe this was the trigger for a pavements security guard to approach them in Poundland in the pavements and instruct them he was going to search them, they then informed the guard he had no authority to do so and went on their way they had gone a few yards down the pavements when my son was violently set upon from behind without warning or explanation (Toby Perkins described this vicious attack as a rugby tackle) he was then dragged into Poundland and held in the shop front where he was loudly taunted by this guard stating the police were on their way and  he was going to be arrested for shoplifting.
During this time he decided he needed to find his mother as she has a serious balance condition and he was concerned for her safety so he attempted to leave where he was set upon once again and dragged around by his lapels by this Council thug, it must be pointed out that as there had been no citizen’s arrest he was free to leave at any time, However having been held for twenty minutes the police arrived and executed a pace search on my son and found him to be innocent of any wrongdoing, it is at this point that the Police decided not only to totally ignore the rules governing pace searches but also to break the law themselves as they were asked by the head guard to detain my son for a further length of time outside Poundland so he could come and abuse him some more, this detention was totally unlawful, also my son complained to the police that he had been assaulted and the police refused to investigate, when this guard who wanted to speak to my son arrived (his late arrival was caused because he was busy elsewhere) he handed my son a six months ban from the pavements centre without good reason.
On seeing my son being viciously attacked by the uniformed thug my partner decided to ring me, she knew there was a payphone downstairs in the library so she went there, as she approached the lift she noticed two security guards go hurtling  downstairs but thought nothing of it and carried on, what she did not know was that the head guard supported by another guard were lying in wait like the skulking criminals they are ready to ambush her, as she exited the lift the head guard grabbed her   without warning or explanation and dragged her off into an alcove (conveniently obscuring the camera point down the corridor) where he violently pinned her against a wall by her neck, she told him that he was hurting her and he told her he would relax his grip if she did not run off, what is surprising  about this statement was that the other guard present knew of her disability as he had once accused her of being drunk due to her disability and he knew of her Ataxia. As a result of this unprovoked and vicious attack she unleashed a string of fs bs and cs on these two criminal scumbags and they got the police in to charge her with a public order offence as I suspect they had now come  realise no crime had been committed which was proved by a search of my partner, the setting up and execution of this attack was why the head guard requested of the Police that they unlawfully detain my son outside Poundland, also at one point my partner was outside the library with two police women and who should appear but  the Wilkos security guard who shouted at her she would not get away with it this time like she did last time, it is clear to me he felt cheated over the last time when my partner was proved to be innocent and he was carrying out some kind of vendetta rather helpfully supported on this occasion by chesterfield borough council employees, a few days after I saw the guard who had assisted in the attack on my partner and questioned him regarding the attack he would not answer me on this but he did impart one useful piece of information which was that the day after the attacks all the guards were sat round a table together to write out written statements I have a recording of this encounter but it was my belief this is where all the lies were constructed. There is more than I have put here which concerns the aftermath and includes more Council lies and lawbreaking what I have wrote here is just the tip of the iceberg of council lies deceit and cover up

Whilst we have all heard of the over zealous security guard as this is a historic incident I am thinking little could be done - what happened to the CCTV footage by the way?

i must tell you i have every understanding and respect for your position regarding voting as i used to think much the same way as yourself, however as i wrote at the beginning democracy in chesterfield is dead and buried what is the point in engaging in the so called democratic process when the Labour Council Leader and the corrupt Council as a whole has proved to me beyond doubt that democracy in Chesterfield is non existant, it would be like me going to church to pray for a god i no longer believe in.

With a different Party in hopefully things would be different and that is why we need to use our votes. Let someone else have a go.  ;)
