A little bump to keep everything lively...the weather here in the Fens has been pretty fab; both rain and sun. Rosie we await your facebook news

Dove, that is spot on; definitely a Robin's alarm call.

What direction does it face? Will it get much sun? and does the rain ever fall there? There are loads of good plants for shade if necessary. If the building shelters it from the rain it will need lots of compost and manure to retain the water. I also would give it a good soak and then just try to break up the clumps as much as possible and get out any roots you find.

Dove, I went onto that site and so far cannot find the right sound. What I heard in the garden, was percussive rather than tuneful. The nearest so far is the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, but I heard this sound in groups of 5 or 6 notes, not as a long pattern of sound like the Woodpecker.

Mine have been and gone also; I always think of them as spring flowers.
