    After I ended Jag-Blacks detailing session, I wandered down the shop with one of my neighbours, bought some beer, took them home and sat in the sunshine having a chat at over 2 meters apart art all times.

    He said that he sees people changing their behaviour and attitude for the better since the whole saga got going.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Haven't seen nor heard from a soul, face-to-face all week.
    Almost all our communication is via whatsapp, with a few phone calls.
    Our nearest resident neighbours are a few hundred metres away, and others about a hundred metres who visit their land to feed chickens or collect produce.
    All very quiet.

    I see it like a clever boy playing with explosives.

    Imagine forcing people to have respect for one another.

    What an experiment to watch.

    I have a new battle in my life. The birds have started taking my house appart.

    Today they have taken my loft insulation and scattered it in small piecies over evryones gardens.

    I've been out and pointed at them all so they know I've seen them.

    They're staying away for now but there are two on look out watching me in the house ready to give the signal.

    There is plenty of dry grass cuttings outside that will make much better nests.

    So disrespectful. Difficult mission in terms of access but I have metal gauze and determination.

    Perhaps an air rifle?

    Or borrow Zero123's demon cat?

    I did contemplate setting up in the loft with BSA airsporter. When I was a boy I used to get sent into the pig loft to cull the overpopulated pigeons with a club.

    I don't feel like doing that stuff any more.

    Start up your own business selling pigeon pie. We might need that soon when food gets so scarce we have to start eating our own pets. "Tiddles, where are you hiding.........."

    Starling, rook, Jack daw and black bird mostly.

    I have a feeling if I shot them, I would be shot by someone. Things have changed. There are a lot more birds for one.
