  • Woodpeckers drowning in water butts

    Date posted: Friday 20th July 2018

    Over the past week there have been two separate cases of plotholders finding a drowned woodpecker in their water butts. Woodpeckers are at particular risk of drowning, due to their shape and the weight of their head. If you have an uncovered water butt, you might want to cover the opening with netting to prevent this. Birds can also drown in pump water tanks or baths. If there is a milk crate or similar in there, that will give them a way to escape. If there isn’t, why not float a small plank in the water to give them something to climb onto.

  • Temporary Ban on Incinerator

    Date posted: Friday 20th July 2018

    Please do not use the incinerator until further notice. The prolonged drought means everything is tinder dry and we cannot run the risk of starting an uncontrollable fire. Bushy Park officials have told us that they strongly support a temporary ban, as they are extremely worried about fire risks. Sorry for any inconvenience – but we hope you understand.

    Date posted: Sunday 1st July 2018

    Plotholders will have their own strategy for dealing with drought conditions but target watering, heavy mulching and water harvesting from shed roofs are all worth considering.
