Unwelcome Guest

My husband, Darren, is in the process of setting up his own photography business, specialising in wildlife photography. As he is still working a lot of his work at the moment is based in our garden and he has taken some wonderful bird shots. We have tried to make our garden as welcoming to birds as possible, with a lovely table, seed holders, fat cakes... Everything the average British garden bird would want. We also put out bread. And that it would appear is our mistake. We have our first rat now invading the garden, stealing the bread. I don't like rats, I don't want a rat in our garden. But - his agent has very few rat photos and this is the ideal opportunity. And, much as I hate to admit it, the little fellow is quite cute - in a filthy, disease ridden way.

So what do we do?

(Not our rat!)
