It has been fantastic to watch video captures of night time and early morning garden visitors. There have been quite a few surprises and the image above is not one I ever expected to see. The sounds coming from the hedgehog feeding station camera weren’t either and they stayed with me for most of the… Read More Fox cub disturbs hedgehog feeding
A wildlife pond highlight, for sure, was the discovery of a clump of frog spawn in the shallow, sunlit pond edge last weekend. It was a quick snapshot on my phone to record the moment, after stepping near the edge to avoid garden works chaos created with new wiring work for the hedgehog feeding station.… Read More First frogspawn 23/3/19, no hedgehogs yet
Ivy flowers on the garden pergola have been discussed in a previous blog post back in November 2011. Black ivy berries to follow have been suggested in other blog comments as food for the Woodpigeon too, further suggesting the promise of Bed and Breakfast for a pair of Woodpigeons that nested there last year. As… Read More Song Thrush and black berry surprise
… Woodpigeons and sorry Mr & Mrs Robin, we were here first! We enjoy preening in the morning sunshine on the roof of the pergola and we enjoy a bit of exercise jumping across its rafters. Then there is the great central location with a lookout over the whole garden – especially towards the potting… Read More … and the potentially noisy neighbours are…
No, I don’t want the house to fall down but I’m huffing and puffing so you get the message that I’m not happy and want you to leave!

Sunflower hearts were on offer during the snowy spell in late March, just in case any hungry hedgehogs newly emerged from hibernation were out and about. There was also a dish of water available as they would also… Read More Hedgehogs visiting garden again 🙂
Does anyone else think they are seeing hedgehogs out of hibernation early this year? March 2nd seems early for my area of Scotland. However, we really haven’t had the coldest of winters so perhaps that is why they are out of hibernation now. Being addicted to evening watching for hedgehog visitors live via an IR… Read More Look out… hedgehogs & danger about!
For sometime now I have wondered this. At this time of year with the garden full of lush foliage the reality is that hedgehogs are very well camouflaged. Being predominately brown in colour they blend in beautifully with any exposed soil below plants.During the day we can see that our garden plants attract many insects… Read More Are hedgehogs still visiting?
Is this a late April Fools? Well… yes, in a way it is! Oh yes, the return of snow was real earlier in the week. In reality, it did add to this posting for March being late. Oh yes… that and the April Fool that would be me! Then the joke was on me late… Read More End of month views March 2010
…and anyone else who may be wondering how the hedgehogs are getting on in my garden. During the summer months they are rather hidden from view with the foliage of my plants – if they are out and about during daylight hours. I would love to see one during the day but alas I have… Read More For Lisa…
