Did Waterloo Line today. Have not been down there for a while because Piccadilly Line was more important. More birds down there and more bush. But going back to Waterloo was interesting because there is also quite a bit of native bush left and I heard a few bellbirds.
It was nice to begin with but then it started to rain on and off. And it was cold. I wanted to check all the traps down that line and see that all is in working order. The first trap was D36 which to my surprise had a very juicy old and rotten rat in it. How delightful. Anyway got it out and put fresh peanut butter into it.
The next traps had nothing. Checked also yours number 27. Put new gas into it and it seems to work. Have to see whether more possums come through on that track. The next interesting trap A6 had another two rats. So on and on I went. Opened all wooden boxes and put fresh peanut butter into it. Finally D47 had another rat very similar to the first one.
Checked the automatic traps as well and I believe that about four or five of them are not working properly. Next time I will check again and remove them and send them back to be replaced. If they still do replace them as they have stopped manufacturing them. And no wonder they stopped making them.
I am now looking for a replacement and have ordered five of another type of trap called the flipping timmy. Yes no joke. That is what it is called. Look it up on google. I only got five because I want to see how they work and if they work. How many possums I might get.
So no possums but at least four rats!
