1.0 out of 5 stars As cruel and inhumane as the people who use them, 20 April 2012
"To discover whether magpies could be to blame for the decline, the RSPB commissioned the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) to analyse its 35 years of bird monitoring records.....The study found that songbird numbers were no different in places where there were many magpies from where there are few. It found no evidence that increased numbers of magpies have caused declines in songbirds and confirms that populations of prey species are not determined by the numbers of their predators." [...]

In short, magpies are not responsible for the decline in songbirds, there is no justification for their torture and slaughter by the people who use these cruel and inhumane traps - don't buy them!

5.0 out of 5 stars a, 12 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Wading Through Jelly (Paperback)
This delightful tale of love and chaos set in the picturesque Devon

countryside serves as a reminder that the "simple life" is often far from

simple. Featuring a cast of interesting and occasionally outrageous

characters, the plot revolves around the efforts of the redoubtable but

sympathetic heroine, Connie struggling to balance the needs of her family

with the demands of her hectic social life. The consequences are, at times,

hilarious. Warm, funny and poignant, "Wading through Jelly" is a

genuinely "feel good" read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Agatha Christie, 18 Nov. 2002
Set in an English village, and complete with the stock cast of suspects, the only surprise is that Hercule Poirot, rather then Miss Marple, arrives to solve this mystery.

In a world where dogs and gardening provide the main topics of conversation, the cast of characters is representative of the local gentry: the solicitor; the doctor; the farmer, the whimsical lady spiritualist - only the Rector is missing. The maids have adenoids, the barmaid is brassy, and the local constabulary show a proper respect for "their betters".
But the old order is breaking down in the aftermath of war. The gentry are feeling the pinch and their former benefactor has died, leaving a wealthy widow. She takes up residence among them, with her darkly mysterious brother. But is she his widow? Was she his wife? And is he really her brother? Suspicion naturally falls on the pair of outsiders - he is not a gentleman and she is certainly no lady, even her name is "bogus".
Foul play is committed with hardly any blood and no nasty gory details. And Hercule Poirot arrives, in a cloud of Gallic mist, to tell us "who done it", despite the red herrings that the author strews across his path.
Hugh Fraser's excellent reading evokes a politically incorrect world which has long vanished, if it ever existed. It is thoroughly archaic and utterly enjoyable.
