As well as spreading manure and mulching I've sown some sunflower seeds between the terrace where we sit out and the fruit patch, and planted a new thyme and oregano as the ones we have don't always keep up with demand.
At some stage this morning, probably while I came in for coffee a sparrowhawk must've taken one of our woodpigeons - just some feathers left and no way a cat could've removed it from the garden without trace - the feathers were exactly where some were left last year when OH watched a sparrowhawk take one of the pigeons. We do get peregrines take pigeons off the roof, but I don't think a peregrine would come right down into the garden which is fairly enclosed.
KEF I did think of going and picking it up, but they don't seem to do that .... it's ok, I can keep myself busy while I wait
