Bishop's Waltham - £1.17.9p
Ashford - £1.19

Or is it ! ?

Keeping an eye open, there are quite a few UK based Nature Programmes on the Documentary Channels, so all is not lost. R...

Re: snakes

Magic.
I'm surprised it didn't run off, they're quite shy usually.

Re: Mice in Chicken Coop and Run Area

I agree food is the key.

Thing is mouse and rats are quite territorial, so sometimes it a case of better the devil you know than the devil you don't.

Get rid of one family and another turns up, usually pretty much instantly !!
