Biggest surprise was that in our absence they had cut down the bushes around the outside of the allotment fence. I did know that it was going to happen, and wasn't sure how I felt about it - especially as is it was full of wildlife. However, it's meant that we now have loads more light and the robins that usually nest in the bushes were there watching us dig as usual so they've obviously found somewhere new. The only minor worry is that it may be marginly easier for someone to climb over now, but I guess if they really want to get in a fence wouldn't (and didn't) stop them!
