Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

As if the farmers were not suffering enough with the effects of a three year drought, they are now faced with a plague of burrowing field mice which attack root crops. Storks help a little in the control of the vermin but so far the mice are free of serious predators. The ferrel cats which are numerous seem to prefer hanging around the refuse sites and feed on leftovers from the dinning table.
