I've a feeling Mick is going to regret you asking that. Next stop the full Good Life back garden. Pigs and all.

It's a duck Joanne. I used to have a dozen in the back garden a few years ago, along with Guinea pigs, rabbits and a dwarf angora goat called Katy.

She was a little cutey! We rescued her off a lad at Haswell auctions for £5 as a 6 week old kid and had to wean her on goats milk in a bottle. She always preferred to be fed that way and we would regularly give her a "comforter" after work as she obviously missed us and liked nothing better than to spend time in the house with us and the dogs! Once she reached full size (think Labrador size) she devasted our garden and then jumped the fence into next doors and destroyed his pride and joy as well! We rehomed her on a farm along the Military Road shortly after, but it broke our hearts to lose "the bairn" that we had probably rescued from certain death as she was too young to leave her mother.

Not seen any bats so far this year, but we normally get several "pips" every night in the summer as the street light in the back lane attracts loads of moths.

Two good places in Shields to see good numbers of bats are the footpath on the dragon which runs alongside with the caravan park and the footpath which runs between the back of Cotman Gardens in Whiteleas ans the Tilesheds LNR.

Another good place to see pips is the path that runs down from the White Horse pub to the Old Marsden Quarry, my mate lives in Beaconside and he saw them fly past his window last night!................Laurence.

Small mammal trapping

Under the guidance of Clare Rawcliffe from South Tyneside Council some of the CCG have been doing some small mammal trapping in Whitburn country park. We set 10 traps on Thursday evening, following our training course, but set them so they wouldn't trap to allow the mammals to get used to them.

Last night Clare went around all of the traps and set them to trap and early this morning we went along to recover them.

There were five traps which contained mammals; 2 male wood mice, two female woodmice and a male common shrew. All mammals returned to their natural habitats unharmed.

The purpose of the trapping was to get to know the traps, how to locate and set them and to identify the mammals. Good time had by all.

Your shots came out better than mine Brian from this morning and pleased you managed to get a excellent shot of the common shrew. When the rest of the lads post thiers we can decide which one's to pass onto Clare as she has expressed just a few be passed on because of work load etc...
I have to say this was a fully enjoyable experience, from the first talk/training by Clare about the traps and mammals we were likely to encounter, last nights setting the traps to catch and further baiting to this mornings opening them..A project we must look into further and include more people interested.
After you and John left we visited the moth trap at Souter ...Totally new experience for me again but it was interesting, I think 6 species of Moth were recorded 2 of which are not common up north...a good count apprently for this time of year. Jason has the full details on species names.
Massive thanks again to Clare and the ST countryside team for this event.

Dougie's shots looked good on the camera screen so hopefully he will have some better than mine

Final score CCG5 - Mammals 0. That has a familiar ring to it
