Spring is here

It now feels like Spring is here.

The birds are busy making nests in our garden, we have a Pigeon, a Blackbird, a Greenfinch, a Robin and a Wren’s nest already. I have been watching the birds taking material in to various trees around the garden.

The feeder has been full and pairs of birds chase each other between the hedges and bushes, this all comes to a halt when the Sparrowhawk appears. The birds all fly to the nearest cover and the garden falls silent.


When the sun comes out there have been a few bumble bees in the garden and yesterday I saw a Brimstone butterfly.

There are plenty of Roe deers in the woods and fields, a group of females and another group with one male and three females.


I put my trail camera out on one of the feeders and was really happy to capture a wood mouse eating while the feeder was swinging from side to side.
