Strange how life has its twists and turns. We all know how hard it is to find permissions. I’m lucky – I have two lovely shoots.
The other day, a young lady gardener came over to do a little job for me. She noticed my bird feeders and asked if this caused a rat problem .
“Not anymore,” I said, and explained that I shot the rats that turned up, but had not seen any lately.
That evening I received a message from a local farmer, who turned out to be the young gardener’s mum. She asked it I could go and have a chat about a vermin problem they have. The upshot is, I now have another permission. This one is to clear rats, rabbits, crows, rooks, woodies and foxes. Almost a full house.
I’m now a happy bunny – forgive the pun. RON WINTER
