It's been an interesting day ... this morning I watched a pair of blue tits both together going into a nest box in the garden opposite. Don't know if they're prospecting for next year already or trying for yet another late brood 'cos it's still so mild
This afternoon the frogs in the pond were croaking quite loudly while I planted bulbs, and a black cap was singing in the ash tree - I'm sure it was a black cap - and then there was a commotion in the sky above me and I looked up to see a couple of rooks mobbing a buzzard!
I've heard a buzzard mewing overhead when I've been in the garden this year, but I've not seen it before. We're right on the edge of the city!
As we watched the rooks gave up and the buzzard flew off in the direction of the marshes.
It's been quite a day for wildlife
