Re: Your Garden Hedgehogs

My camera caught a Hog out after dawn yesterday morning. The first time since I've been setting the trailcam.

Watching a male sparrow feeding fledglings this morning. Season not quite over yet.
The fine weather in July must have encouraged them to go another time. :nod:

Will be interesting to see just how high it actually gets.
Indeed. You'd better seek planning permission just in case :nod:

Thank you for the history lesson. Maybe I'll try a beech :rolleyes:.

Re: BUTTERFLIES

I spent a good bit of time in the garden today. The butterfly of the day was the Holly Blue abley supported by Large and Small Whites. I did catch a glimpse of one Painted Lady :)

Be nice when it flowers next year. Could reach the gutter of the house, or maybe above it. Have two smaller ones to get in, but they only get to four feet.

At 0815 this morning I found myself beneath an oak tree (don't ask). The little acorns are just at the stage of green peas.
Very pleasant to observe :nod:.
If you were looking for King Charles II I think he's already done a runner :nod:

Re: BIRD FEEDING

It seems the cooler, damper weather has re-ignited my sparrow's appetites. The consumption of the seed mix had dropped off noticeably but now they are back to breeding time levels. :)
