Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Re: Ryanair industrial action July

Norwegian no longer fly BHM/AGP but do still fly LGW/AGP. I agree, they are a nice little Airline, we hope one day to use them to go to the States. They are in a spot of difficulty at the moment with cash flow, I notice that IAG have taken a small shareholding...could be ominous!

Re: Buy Soil in bulk

Our sand and gravel man does topsoil, 5€ a tonne collected. I expect you could pay someone if you haven't a trailer. Where in "Spain" are you?

Re: Septic Tank Pumping Out

I built ours when we bought the Finca., two chambers , 25 metre leech line, built to Victorian specs. It's been going for 18 years and I expect it to go on for many more years yet. Most of our grey water is used on the shrubbery so it just gets the good stuff!. Size is really important as Sid says.

Re: Safe Weed Killer

As above from Sid but if you go to an Agricultural Merchant, get "Touchdown", it is just as good as Roundup ( exactly the same chemicals) and a good bit cheaper. I buy it in 5 litres for less than 30€ but I am a registered user. It does come in Litre pots as well.

Re: Bird migration this year

It is definitely strange this year; We have one Golden Oriole taking the fruit from our Morus tree, normally they miss the main crop, we heard a cuckoo a couple of days ago but not since. We have no Wheatears, or Shrikes yet and only one pair of Swallows (now with 5 eggs happily). House sparrows are...

Re: Connecting to Town Water

We had to form a neighbourhood scheme to connect to the town supply, (with some funding from an EU scheme) and do the work ourselves, ie we paid contractors. The scheme ran for a few years with a local commitee and overseen by engineers from the town and was then taken over by the town hall and inco...
