Just try it next time you hear a tawny, Patsy. They will get interested and investigate.

Best owl experience I remember was a barn owl though, Mum was lost and dithering in the car and this thing just overtook us!

This is the downside, the birds perch on the adjoining fence between my father's garden and his neighbour's and unfortunately they do leave a mess which I don't think they were too happy about...

The tawny owl sounds fasinating and must be wonderful to watch. When we were living on the Isle of Wight my father used to get a Woodpecker in his garden which I don't see here in Bristol even in the rurally parts.

"Wood pigeon are delicious - had half a dozen last weekend in a casserole"

Sounds smashing the leveller.

The trouble is, that they have taken a liking to sitting on my daughters beloved swing and crapping all over it. Consequently she hardly uses it now.

Maybe I could put barb wire on the top of the swing and along the top of the fencing.

Is that allowed?

We get Jays, patsy. They seem to love peanuts. Magpies also come to the bird feeders. I'm not going to agree with all they do as I think it was one of them that took blackbird chicks this year. No cat would have got there from above leaving the nest undisturbed...

Thee days I think it is often a case of let nature be for reasons at times I do not understand but enjoy what you see or hear. There is a treecreeper around again and I think a little woodpecker. For hearing, play games with a tawny owl - you can whooo whoo back and forth and they can come close.

'I would leave them be myself.'

So would I, but new estates with their postage stamp gardens attract tidy people. I used to live on one myself, never again ;-)

I would leave them be myself. My father lives on a private housing estate where once upon a time it was rural. Now the area is established he finds quite an array of birds in his garden Wood Pigeons, Doves and he even had a Jay in his garden. I think in time they know where to go where they will be welcome and learn where it is safer. Infact the Magpies and the Wood Pigeons accept each other in his garden but he does keep his eye on the odd bullying Magpie.

I believe you are legally entitled to cut back the branches from neighbours trees which overhang into your side of the boundry. Not a particularly pretty solution of course.

Cats are still legal, aren't they - at least for now? ;>)

From my very rural POV where we just rent a bit of farmland , I'd say just love them... but that probably does not help you.

At the back of our garden, the neighbour has a Green Leylandii tree about the size in this picture

http://leylandii.com/Information/green-leylandii.html

It is about the height of the house.

It isn't a problem as it does not block out any light and looks nice against the neighbours building.

The problem I have is that wood pigeon's are nesting there each year. our estate was built on existing farming land (the area is pretty rural).

We only have a small back garden and they are making our garden a mess (but not our neighbours). Whilst it is nice to see them building their nest, mating and seeing the young in our garden and learning to fly etc, it is getting beyond a joke.

Is there any way legally, we can do anything to discourage or stop them from breeding there. It was probably fine, whilst it was farmland, but not so nice in what is now a new housing estate.
