That was a busy afternoon - sorting out piles of dead vegetations, sticks, logs etc and making it all into more hidey-holes for hedgehogs etc in out of the way corners behind tree trunks etc. I've also tried to sort out stacks of various plastic pots etc and in doing so discovered at least a dozen leopard slugs - they've been rehomed in the compost bins
Every so often the robin came and shouted at me that the mealworm dish was empty - I had a sit down on the terrace with mealworms on my lap and yes, he came and took them
The starlings that are nesting in next door's roof have also discovered the dish of live mealworms - robins take one at a time back to their nest - the starlings behave like a starving man at an All you can eat Buffet You know those photos of puffins with their beaks full of fish !!!?
