    Has anyone seen one around the city in recent times? Used to see them in Dangan when I bushing. Been years since I spotted one

    Found one in my shed about 6 weeks ago, had left the door open for a while and was about to close it late in the evening when I heard a rustle in the corner. Cleared the way, got out some water and a bit of an apple outside the door and left door open and came back in about 30min and the "Grainneog" was gone(as was the apple). Have a hole in the back wall which allows them to naviagate in and out of the garden. My sisters next door neighbour in Shantalla has 3 of them in her back garden, think she feeds them so they probably stick around. Great to have around if ya have alot of slugs or snails in your garden.

    You have given me inspiration to add another access point between a side garden and front garden for our little friends. A small DIY job for the weekend.

    Was standing outside one evening having an late night smoke when I heard 'rustle' beside my feet and looked down in the dusk it 'moved' and I moved even faster not knowing what it was.... Did I realised what it was and he was off looking for his food.

    Right in the middle of an Estate on the East side of the City.
