Gardengirl , once it had been dug you could look into "green manure" , I have found it useful , I know it doesn't suit everybody 

I have covered the ground with plastic sacks as a temporary measure before now 

whatever you decide best of luck

Lincoln and Derby Cathedrals have peregrines nesting there , one year Derby had a camera fitted so you could view them via there web site , just like Spring Watch  

At the allotments we have Buzards flying around , not sure what they eat , have seen them being buzzed by rooks , so they where probably after the young in the nests

The doves and pigeons sit on top of the fence by the Hawthorn tree where the feeders are  and down it comes like a bolt out of the blue , quiet dramatic really !

If you are in the Garden and you notice it has gone quiet and all the little birds have disappeared you know the Hawks are about  Such is nature

Morning all , just had breakfast listening to the rain , forecast all day , so no gardening today

Steve , love your New Bird Feeder , very impressive , got mine hanging under Hawthorn tree , give them a bit of protection , as we have Sparrow Hawks locally and they take the odd dove , pigeon and blackbird from the garden
