What a nightmare Dove - so lucky noone was hurt.  The weather at the moment is really scary

Great to see you Fairy - miss you when you go flitting off!

birds counted - nearly all the usuals obliged by putting in an appearance.  Was a lovely day til about 4 when a tornado seemed to rip through the valley.  Branches down all over the roads again.

seed sowing tomoz (wild flowers that need cold to get them going) plus some hardwood cuttings - all GH jobs, since forecast is appalling

Morning all - missed the bus and the tardis, but caught up on Winterwatch instead.  Have to say, not a big fan of the reintroduction of wolves.

lots of taxi duty today - but have some GQT's and RHS podcasts downloaded to keep me entertained.  Also an opticians appointment - think i will leave my birdcount til after that - might improve my identification skills if i can see better.  Just found out treeman is coming to chip up the remains of our trees at 10 - so that'll scare most of the birds off this morning anyway

Hi Clari - we don't normally overlap - so either i am late, or you are early !  Hope you have another successful weekend of earth moving in your garden, and the rain holds off for you all

Theres already some great ideas above.  Thought i would also point you to an article that has just been published on the main part of this site which focuses on trees for small gardens, and might give you some more ideas.

Ggirl - i will definitely be counting - have done it every year for a decade and it always amazes me how much more you see when you stop and watch the feeders for a full hour, rather than the usual glance out of the window now and then !
