What's that then?
I lifted a sheet of "wrinkly tin" this afternnoon. and found these.
They are black and quite shiney; smaller than rabbit poo and bigger than rat.
I'm assuming they are eggs of some sort.
NEW ZEALAND FLATWORM EGGS MAYBE?
Aghh b****r! That's them. I very carefully put the cover back too!!!!
SERVE THEM UP AS CAVIAR.
There is a survey site so they can record where they are found if you are interested. OPAL.
Try not to miss any eggs as there are multiple worms in an egg.

Aw Cheers Clari & a1154. I had a feeling there would be something like that but I only found one for Scotland. (They get all the best stuff ).
I did try to catch them all but the soil was so friable and lovely (after being under sheeting for dear knows how many years) that they rolled in all through it.
Dirty wee beasts! It's very nearly putting me off my coffee thinking about it.
I've been trying to have a look to see if anywhere suggests I.e. hot water might be effective to kill any that that rolled away but no luck so far.
I've completed the survey Clari and the bonus is I now know exactly where I am...always handy!
They had a stand at Gardening Scotland, showing people the eggs, and worms, so you know exactly what to look out for. Very useful. Not here in this area, yet, but keeping looking.
