I've got a gun problem. One of the residents down stairs has got an air rifle and shooting my birds on the communal bird feeder. See link: http://peteralfreybirdingnotebook.blogspot.com/2010/01/beddington-farmlands-observatory.html
I am from a hunting family, my mum comes from Malta (pic: Maltese hunter), so it's a familar problem but not one I was expecting to have to deal with in Hackbridge.
Mmmmm..... interesting development.
