Is organic milk more attractive to wildlife?


Had a doorstep milk delivery from Dairy Crest this morning. Didn't ask for one but that seems to be the way this service has gone since Co-Op sold it.

As you will see from the picture, birds nr something removed 3 out of 4 lids on the bottles to get at the milk. Didn't used to happen when we got regular full fat and semi-skimmed.

Silver and red-silver lids then and now they are green-silver for organic. Is this colour more attractive to birds I wonder?

Either way, at these prices and with a family we cannot afford to share most of our milk with them.

Any ideas to stop milk bottles getting pecked that won't harm the birds will be gratefully received. Please leave a comment.

Thanks.

Eaton Park 80th Anniversary Celebration on 15th June


Sorry for not posting for ages.
Just re-adjusting to a newborn baby in the house and every spare minute is filled, regrettably not by sleep which we all crave!!!
If you are looking for something worthwhile to do on Sunday 15th June, why not go to the 80th annivesary celebration at Eaton Park, Norwich?
The event is from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
There is model boating, extreme frizbee (whatever that is), line dancing (also extreme in my view!), bug hunting, tennis and football.
Don't forget the miniature railway, live music at the bandstand , a raffle and lots of childrens activities.
The event will be opened by the Lord Mayor of Norwich at 12.15p.m.
You are invited to bring a picnic but not barbecues. Refreshments are available at the Cafe Essense at the South East Pavilllion.
The event is organised by the Friends of Eaton Park and Norwich City Council.
