In low numbers domestic pigs are good in a woodland. There are some kept in one not too far from us to keep the brambles and other things down in plantation. Wild boar tend to dig things up rather a l ...

Apart from seeing them at the zoo when I was a child, I haven't had much to do with camels. Rather an unknown quantity as far as character is concerned.

I assume these are feral pigs and not wild boar. Even feral pigs can get a bit nasty, but wild boar are definitely best avoided. Hoping we don't get them in the woods as they are both destructive and ...

We will have that in the spring here no doubt. Not sure they should be in New Zealand, but lovely to hear them.

Looks like a useful piece of equipment. One thing that strikes me is that it will work very much below zero C ambient temperature. Having lived with clean rooms that give up below zero C that is a maj ...

Some of the pictures I have seen have been amazing. I understand that even the best wildlife photographers aren't always sure what they have until afterwards. The best example of this was of the actua ...

Sounds as if you at least need to keep an eye on Flash. If it doesn't heal within a few days, or if it looks infected the net might be an idea even if it upsets him.

We have seen quite a lot of ki ...

Rabbits have reduced a lot over the last 20 years since we had the woods. I think there have been several diseases; myxy and a hemorrhagic disease which has virtually wiped them out. We have seen a fe ...

Thanks for that guide Dpack. We have Harts Tongue Fern, Broad buckler fern, and a variation of it, Intermediate Polypody, Male fern, and bracken in the woods.

Well done. I agree about taking out the rhodi in the areas of trees, and perhaps more as it inhibits other plant growth. The only way I know of getting rid of it is to set Guides and Scouts on it for ...

You also have to look at things like energy and water use. Using modern technology, it is probably a lot more efficient to recycle a lot of things that would have used too much energy produced by foss ...

At present some of it probably is. More and more is being recycled I am glad to say. It is economics; if it is worth recycling then it will be. The higher the extraction cost for new material the more ...
