Yesterday was supposed to be the first day of spring according to the meteorological calendar but we’ve had so much snow here in the past 24 or so hours, I mean I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much snow before.
So today is the first day of this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which is running from the 27th – 29th January.
What better way to follow on from yesterday’s post than with a post all about wildlife in the garden. We have a variety of wildlife that visit our garden, some are regulars and then there’s the pheasant that’s just visited once.
We’re in the process of giving our garden a bit of an overhaul/make-over at the moment so a lot of new plants are being added, we went to the garden centre again today and picked up quite a few more plants (we basically came home with half the garden centre haha). I thought I’d split this into two posts because some haven’t been planted yet, we didn’t get home until nearly tea time and it gets dark before 7 now so we didn’t have time to put them all in, there was rather a lot to sort out in one go anyway!
Autumn is one of the best times of year for taking photos outside with all the berries and autumn coloured leaves around, some of these photos are from this year and a few are from other years but I thought I’d put a post together full of autumn awesomeness.
Stover Country Park is one of my most favourite places to go walking, after going there for the first time in 2013, I’ve been back several times since. It’s pretty local too which is great, I really don’t know why we didn’t start going there sooner.
One of the best areas is a walkway which takes you round to where there’s a bird feeder hanging, birds pop in and out to feed there all the time. The squirrels feed on the ground (you can see them climbing the trees around there too) I’ve seen birds there I haven’t seen anywhere else.
