    Workshop issues

    I discovered last week that Mrs Robin had taken a liking to my workshop.
    She had made herself very comfortable on top of the tyre rack and set up home....

    No point in brooding about it.

    Aaaah! Lovely.
    This is one workshop issue where Neil's engineering flowchart or any solution involving a hammer won't apply I trust?
    It's sods law that at this time of the year as temperatures increase we have to keep the big workshop doors closed to keep out the Swallows!

    Tucked up for the night with her babies, how long before they leave the nest?
    Panic last night, we have no cats on the farm but black cat visits from the village. I was rushing around trying to block up a few holes to make the workshop a bit more cat-proof.
    Here's hoping....

    Re: Workshop issues

    Such a welcome visitor(s) :-). I had a number of mice settle in over the winter. They pinched the bird's peanuts and stored them in the rear upper chassis / strut mounts area ON BOTH SIDES!! Of all the places to chose in the garage..... classy choice :-)
    Well, I though I'd resolved my problems only to find last week, they'd also stored them in the air filter induction inlet ducting. I have a Pipercross Viper enclosed filter system.
    All cleaned up now as these cars won't run on peanuts :-)

    Well I've got my workshop back, 4 robins fledged and left the nest.
    ... and not even a thank you/goodbye ....
