Magpies attacking blackbird and nest

Magpies raided the collared doves' nest here a couple of weeks ago.  They're nesting again now.  It's what happens

We've just had a beautiful jay at our bird feeder - but  he can't take a load of suet pellets and nuts back to his youngsters - he'll need nestlings and eggs to feed them.

We're fascinated watching the peregrine falcons nesting on the cathedral spire - but every time they bring a pigeon back to feed their youngsters, there's a nest of baby pigeons somewhere nearby that have been orphaned

Afraid that's nature, red in tooth and claw - the magpie has babies to feed.

You have spider mite outside in this weather? I would have thought the temperatures were far too low.

Isn't it great to pick and eat veg straight from the garden.  We've had two pickings of broad beans already, and we're having the first spring cabbage with toad in the hole for supper this evening - doesn't get much better does it?

Tomato plant leaves turning brown - should I pick them out?

Posted: 30/05/2015 at 14:36

I think this may be sun-scorch - although hardened off as well as possible, it may be that they were not toughened up sufficiently to cope with some of the spells bright sunlight we've had (goodness knows we've had little of it in May until recently). 

I think I'd pick off the worst affected leaves and leave the rest.  I think they'll be fine
