Lots of birds in the garden lately!
Alongside the regulars (robin, heron, swan, moorhen, coot, great crested glebe, mallard, pheasant) we’ve seen blue tits, great tits, jay and some great little birds, like sparrows but with white flashes.
Global bird day – may14!
hmm lovely sunny day but still cold

These peeps have been good friends over winter:
I ordered another 2 kubus of oak wood today… its tempting to see if we could get through without needing more but the temperature is going up and down so much i reckon it’s better to get in the stocks. Especially to get through the rainy days.
