Got one who comes and eats raisins from near me at about 10 foot

gets ragged by magpies sometimes and I saw him with a sick pigeon in his mouth

He looked happy !!

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 11:14

the one at home has 30 tubes and about 20 holes drilled in a block of wood

10 of the bamboo tubes are sealed up with soil so I know that there will be new bees emerging at some point

Its my aim on my allotment to build one person a hotel if they promise to build one for someone else and so start achain reaction until we have 50 hotels

New Hedge and Weeds

Planted some " instant hedge " a few months ago and the weeds seem to love growing under it

Apart from regular weeding which I hate is there some way of suppressing most of the weeds....bark etc

Advice please friends

I have a conservatory with a clear plastic roof and I throw bread crumbs up on to it and watch the sparrows from underneath scrabbling and skidding around which is highly amusing until the gulls turn up

Anyone else got any Bird Stories
