When you’ve got a friend

Every Monday I’m out in the woodyard making firewood.  Eventually it might get cold in the UK and more people will buy it.  Not at the moment though. Tomorrow is due to be the warmest Halloween on record.  I digress.  Every Monday this little chap appears (or there’s more than one and they all look the same).


Goldfinches in the Front Garden

This year, I was lucky enough to have Goldfinches nesting in the Buddleja bush in my front garden.  Why they would want to nest where there’s lots of cats, and people walking close by is anyones guess.  They appeared to have now fledge. Well at least there is no sign of dead chicks, unlike when I had blackbirds nesting there.  So I hope they are out there, flying around and singing like birds should.  Good luck to you!  Here’s one of them before they left.
