With the past few weeks of very cold weather the garden has become quite busy with animals looking for food and water.
Most birds and small mammals live very close to the edge during the winter months and a few days without food in very cold weather can mean the difference between life and death.
Even for large mammals it can become difficult to find food if the ground is frozen, covered with snow or their prey if less active.
These are just some of the visitors
Not in my garden but over the years I have been blogging I have heard from people about sightings of otters on my local patch so I was glad to see recent signs of them.
Now the weather has changed and become a bit warmer the birds are enjoying the birdbath again.
