Dave I think thats a great idea, like you say gardeners are generally wildlife lovers and a good garden can be a good haven for wildlife. I for one would support it icon_thumleft

I too agree Dave, thanks!

I think we were just playing safe putting it here, well Conifers was.. :lol:

I always leave corners untouched for birds. They have fatballs on the washing line (no washing) but birds don't see them fatballs or don't like them.

I bought peanuts, I bought a new water thing on a stand with a fluted edge.

There is a bucket filled to the top with water for frogs.

Just in case you hadn't noticed, this topic is now in the new 'Wildlife and Natural World' Forum. This is public so is viewable by the web :wink:
Best regards

Most have moved on from up here, but still a few around - saw 4 from my house today.

Anyone else been seeing any yet?

Superb capture Conifers, still hardly any around here, or Bramblings.
Looking forward to next month for the early Spring migrants.

I saw a large flock of them feeding on rose hips a few weeks ago in sunderland.

A few years ago I saw 1 ringneck parakeet in sunderland on its own which was odd because they are usually in large flocks and are unheard of round here.
