Let’s start with the plants. Well, as you can see below they have a small covering of snow. It had been forecasted to fall overnight but it was still a surprise to open blinds this morning and see it covering the garden. I love to see the look of this sort of amount – not… Read More Updates galore
Ironing… perhaps not a way you would expect to watch for wildlife. For the last two evenings I have been almost glued to the computer screen after an unexpected turn of events. Sorry… no emails no browsing, no blogging. Any guesses on what has been going on? Mm… I am still at the speculation point… Read More Is there anything in there?
Some things shouldn’t be and others? Well, I’m really not sure… Today, I actually planned to save ‘The Cosmos’. Oh dear… that is going to have to wait until tomorrow now! Ah… the ‘to do list’ in the garden that just grows at this time of year. Autumn, really is quite a mysterious season don’t… Read More Is there anything out there?

Time at the PC has been short and sweet so I do apologise for not answering all my mail and comments or visiting my favourite blogs – I will soon. Oh…… Read More Comings and goings

Knowing not everyone is able to see this wonderful wildlife visitor it has been a delight to share our visits both through photos and video.All captures are watched live and that’s what makes them so special. I… Read More Hedgehog visits and links
I haven’t had my night camera in use for a few nights. However I had guessed by the food distribution at my hedgehog feeding station that we have had less hedgehog visits recently. I am also guessing that the landscaping work that my neighbour is still having done perhaps has altered the route they have… Read More Hungry young hedgehog
There is definitely a lot to watch out for in the garden at the moment between the plants, birds and wildlife. What a great time of year this is! Our blue tit female is still busy with her nest and I will post her progress in a couple of days as at the moment it… Read More Hedgehogs first for camera
