Mr Blackbird is well fed up

Neil’s mate Fid arrived today to stay for a couple of days.  Neil and he set to work on putting up the netting for the fruit cage.  It was difficult getting the netting over the top of the poles to form a roof, and then tensioning it so it was equal all the way round.  This took several attempts. They then built a door in the side , which hinges to allow entry.

We could then remove the temporary netting we had had over the gooseberry bushes and some of the raspberries.  As we were sitting admiring the work, we noticed Mr Blackbird getting in a spin.  He was barging against the netting trying to get in.  Now I know who has been stealing my raspberries.  With the netting there his thieving will have to stop but he’s not happy.  He’s hopping all around the netting trying to find a way in but to no avail.

So Blackbird zero, us and the fruit cage one point!!
