Phil,
 The guy with the material didn't turn up ..he rang tonight and say things will be here tomorrow .
I've dismantled all the cane stuff and made a sort of frame from a full set of a kaput superlight weight caravan fibreglass awning support rods .

 The uprights of the frame are  my old chimney sweep rods that has a steel square drive /locator spigot on the end . This spigot has been use to hammer a bit of blue water pipe onto it ,the pipe was prevoiusly cut end on with two cuts wide enough to sit the support rod into the slot , the I wired them in place with stripped down copper wire out of some old house wiring cable ( 2.5 mm T& E ) .

 Will take pictures and closeup tomorrow ( Wednesday ) .. didn't bother yesterday as it was peeing down most of the day .
Today's excuse is ... " I was doing other things . ;) "

Great pictures of the 2 "pest" constructions. We have semi wild rabbits in the next village that escaped from the a hutch but fortunately we just don't see them hereabouts. Mice and a mouse/squirrel thing are our pests - the tunnel of course so any tips on how to construct an underground net would help.
the buggers came up under the tomatoes I planted out last week - trashed.
A little white Westie thinks she is far too "pretty" to get herself dirty digging them up. We can buy explosives but a detonator and dynamite costs about 5 Euro a shot.
