I know- it’s been a while so here is an update.
We now have a fence cutting us off from the building site on the back. While we are cut off our local wildlife is still able to get through curtesy of the generous gaps underneath. This is evidenced by our hedgehog Patchy who was alive two nights ago.
No fox sighting for a while now- the foundations for the three houses immediately on the back of us may have something to do with that!
We had no birds in our bird box this year, much to Michele’s relief! Last year was traumatic watching the blue tit chicks struggling. We have two greenfinch feeding every morning now, which is nice to see as disease has hit them hard over the past few years. A young robin has made our garden its home- well until its parents decide it is time for it to move on!
We had a short break in Scotland last month and had the privilege of having a pine martin feeding on the decking just outside the studio. We also heard our first cuckoo for a long, long time.
