We have a field and because of that we have our own private show of the local wildlife in our area, it is a joy to see it on a daily basis. We have put up numerous bird boxes and added a barn
owl suite to the barn, made to the plans we got from the Hawk Conservancy Trust...no takers yet.
One good thing is that we have seen them in the area.
I have always loved nature, but having the field it has become a bigger part of my life. Because I work in engineering I recycle the swarf and scrap from work and this way I raise funds for wildlife charities in the local area. Also because family, friends, work colleagues etc. know what I do, we sometimes come home to find a pile of someones scrap metal.
I excel at - very handy, thoughtful, very wicked sense of humour and do not mind hard work.
I don’t excel at - I get very frustrated when things do not go well, as everything I have in mind to do normally takes at least 3 attempts to get it as I see it in my minds eye!
