Can you compost any pruning etc, leaf mold is great for the soil

What about a few Clematis Montana, they grow rapidly, flower in spring. Then some climbing roses and other climbers, great for birds, wildlife.

Today I noticed a bird, looked like a sparrow or small song thrush, however the birds eyes were bulbous. Difficult to describe, they looked like peanuts? Thoughts please

New wildlife pond - what should we expect to colonise it first?

good evening all.

I also have a lot of blanket weed, if I buy a punnet of watercress from grocer, and immerse said punnet in pond, should that do the trick?

a few years ago. I saw a robin building a nest on a pile of bags in my garage, then I found 4 chicks in the nest.

yesterday I realised that a robin has built a nest again in garage, the lightweight door opens upwards, and slides onto the ceiling. the nest is in the gap between door and ceiling.

I haven't explained that well, anyway, I leave the windows open, so that is how the robin gains entry. so fingers crossed for another brood

I also wonder if putting the snails into compost bin, and eggs are laid, am I then putting the snails back onto the plants.
