We are by a bird reserve and now we are growing veg we went chicken wire thinking the birds were the threat,

Really should have gone for mesh.

Can you just put mesh over the chicken wire, or use the same frame to support it?

I have been manually removing butterfly eggs this year every few days, and with the other bed netted, things don't look too bad as far as brassicas are concerned. Some things not growing too well, but so far no major pests.

I'm thinking we will have a rethink. The whole area as you know is under construction and so have been concentrating on the building before tinkering with improvements.
