    Don't need to 'give' them anything, they come in and help themselves

    Moorhens are lovely birds, normally quite shy and secretive although these two don't seem to have heard about that. Much nicer than Coots!

    We have about 10 in the garden at the moment. These two are probably thinking of making a nest on our veranda

    They are very tough and stringy , the only way to tenderise them is to let a few 22wheel semis drive over them. Don't even think of BBQ:Sad:
