I've been out, got a load of eggs/cake/bread from a farm shop in the sticks pay over the phone collect from table outside farm. Got petrol gloved up paid at kiosk window, went to Halfords picked up a balance bike for little one, paid outside door on an extended reader wearing gloves. Head home chuck everything in the back garden, have a smoke and a coffee. All you can do is take precautions, try to minimise venturing out, definitely avoid highly populated inside spaces if you have a choice. I don't think I'll be doing supermarkets again. We've a home delivery booked in a week or so and don't have cause to go out again accept for milk. Be lucky.

They are pretty prolific, and most mornings any grass will show signs of there nocturnal feeding 👍

I no people that have for photography but don’t no the law on it 👍

I would be baiting them

get a 45 gallon plastic drum

cut a hole in the top fix a lid on

drill inch and 1/4 holes on the bottom edge just about 6 holes.

place the drum on two pieces of 4x2 edge up

then ratchet strap it to a tree. Use a 2 inch strap.

fill it full of oats/wheat

 

give it a week

Ted, they are easy to find.... No need for baiting.... Walk most places and you will see signs of them... 20181216_121542.jpg.838723b5826c88b49fa67addb6268f6f.jpg

The chinese are used to these outbreaks,and mask up,and use sanitizer straight away.they know how to reduce the impact.im afraid we are taking it as a joke,and boris and his gang have been too slow off the mark......

You're not wrong there mate, must be at least a month ago I walked through Chinatown and there was zipperheads left right and centre cutting about masked up, all they were missing was glow sticks and a noisy darkened venue

There are different ways to handle situations like these and we are novices at it. The Dutch decided to protect their old folk and other vulnerable people and let the others spread the virus to build up an immunity whereas other countries have enforced lock downs or restrictions on people moving. None of it is perfect and you have the situation in Italy where everything but the essential services have been closed and the unions representing the essential services are lobbying to keep their workers at home to protect their lives. In France the Gendarmes were ordered to give all their personal protective equipment to the medical profession and then they were told to enforce the lock down. Now their union has told Macron to provide the police with protective equipment or they will stop enforcing the lock down. There are the same or similar stories from every country. Nobody was prepared for all this.

There has never been a drill or rehearsal and the world-wide cuts in public services driven it must be said by public aversion to paying taxes, has left every country's health and police services overwhelmed.

Truth is this will run its course all the measures now may slow it down and help the NHS but there are far to many dickheads out there to eradicate the spread. Mass hysteria seems to be the order of the day mainly due to the facebook experts. As for me ive tried self isolating for years due to the fact i hate crowded places and prefer solitude.

I agree,but if I go shopping in my supermarket i have to sanitise the hands before putting on gloves,all the cashiers wear gloves and masks,pay by card so no skin contact,put card in pocket,pack bags,go home.unpack shopping,wipe down shopping and card,put away shopping ,go for shower.sad,but you need to do it👍

I've been using the card with a piece of clear plastic.to type the number in and once home putting the card in the sink and washing with bleach.

My thinking is.surely that card would. Pick up any virus once slotted into the card slot.

As you don't know who has been putting a card into the machine
