Hi Mel,
I was barbequing on the back porch one evening and I looked up and this is what I saw peeking out from behind the trim.  As I produced more smoke he flew away followed by four more bats.
The space they were in is 1.25"w x .375"d and is formed by the vertical channel siding.  The bats enter at the bottom and exit at the top. Amazing!  As soon as they migrated south for the winter I filled the entry and exit holes with caulking and repainted the trim. I had been told that they only
required a .375" space to get into but thought the woman who told me was exaggerating, now I know she was telling the truth.

I have been looking at your web site and I'm sorry to say I can't add any more names to the Stanley Secondary Modern School pictures.  I still have my Victory Certificate, but I don't have my ration book. I didn't know Alyssa and Olivia did sketches for you that day you took us on your boat. Next time they are here I will show them the pictures, I'll bet they remember doing them.
You've got to teach Holly to walk on her two front legs!
All the best to you and June and Holly,
Ernie.  (Pics & info received by email 05/03/08)

Ernie - how about Wakefield Secondary Technical School - now added to links page ?

Time to 'come clean' - I didn't create the 'Holly Tricks' - it was sent to me by my Niece Julie Hart (sister Doreen's elder daughter).  I merely created a link to it.  Mel

The "pecker" was pissed off at me for nailing the piece of sheet metal over his "work" the next day
when he showed up. He was pecking at the tin and hopping around the tree squawking like hell !

Yesterday, (28th April, 2008), I noticed another small hole being "worked on" just below the tin.

The battle goes on!

Ever been walking through the woods at night and had that sensation that something was following you???

This picture is from Kimberley, BC where someone set out a motion Sensor
camera to see if any big bucks were passing in the area.
