    I thought it would be nice to make a thread where we could all contribute some pictures of various wildlife that pops up in our gardens now the weathers warming up...

    Having 2 cats that are spending more and more time in the garden with the warm weather I don't really get a lot of birds visiting lol, but do get lots of insects! :)

    Firstly a woodlouce

    No pictures as it took me totally by surprise - sitting out on the patio this evening when a fox calmly trotted out from the side of the house, past me, past my cat, who was out with me on her harness and up the garden to the field behind :eek: Mai Tai went mad trying to chase after him but i don't think the fox could have cared less :lol:

    Aww that must have been so surreal to see lol, the foxes in my area won't let you get anywhere near them, I only ever see their silhouette at night.

    If it wasn't for the sparrow hawks the song birds would be in a bad way

    Hello people :D

    We've been feeding our birds since January when we got the harsh winter through encouragement from a paticular member on here (she knows who she is :D) and we've been feeding them ever since! Currently we only have out sunflower seeds and a small amount of no mess as we've run out but my mum is on her way home with more thistle seed and a brand new peanut feeder (mesh of course) with some peanuts. We have a bird bath and also a water feature but it needs unclogging (the pump) and the birds love to use it. I'm planning on buying a new shepherd's hook thing as the one we have is old and crooked and just...yeah. Oh and we have a huge tree stump too which I put some big fat blocks on today (peanut and fruit flavoured) and we also have some mild grated cheese out. There are plenty of baby birdies in the garden and next door feed the birds too and the hedge runs between the back gardens so it is perfect for them! All of the feeders are hanging from the gazebo at the bottom of the garden which we also have a river behind our garden and plenty of trees and there is a hedge along the other side of our garden too. Lots of areas, oh and a holly bush and a load more trees :laugh:

    Sorry for the overload, aha. Will share pictures in the future when I have time to sit down and watch the birds ;)
