Went to Waterlily this afternoon and the traps had done their job. Two quick kills, these traps are very powerful, I'm pleased to say (please because it makes me (and Andrew's Buttons) feel better.
The family have suggested I should have used humane traps (these are the three in tears over Geoffry) I contend 24 hours stuck in a little box on a cold canal boat, then released into the wild to find a warm space for the night (I know I am anthropomorphising here) would be worse than the instant end they received.
Anyhow the traps are reset - I hope I do not find any more visitors !
A close call and 4 more years !
