Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I've seen a big flock of blue tits in my neighbour's garden today, never seen such a big group flying around, at least 20 of them :eek: . It was so lovely to see them in such great numbers, buzzing around the garden in all directions :love: :flying:

Re: Your Garden Hedgehogs

Whilst tidying up a part of my garden this afternoon I had a very strange find. A hedgehog skull :eek: .
