Water for wildlife

Back on 17th June I wrote a post about putting water out for wildlife.

After the last month of very little rain, it is even more important

Doesn’t have to be anything special, just as long as it isn’t too deep and has a stick or a stone that small mammals or insects can use to climb out, if they fall in.

Food Supply July

‘No Mow May’, turned in to ‘Let it bloom June’, it’s now ‘Food supply July’ .

Each year we stop mowing our small front garden for a few months over the summer, starting in May.

This year the sparrows have been taking full advantage of all the seed heads and grasses. There has also been an increase of Green finches using the garden

Day 10 – 30 Days Wild – Pied wagtail fledglings

Great to watch a couple of Pied wagtail fledglings hopping from roof top to roof top being fed

One of the fledglings was getting pretty hot sat in the sun and was ‘gular fluttering’ which is a bird’s version of panting.
