We found enormous lumps of flat concrete, they were manoeuvred into position as steps and bank retainer. There were old hand-made bricks, they made the summerhouse. 

The plastic fertilizer sacks and the rustier pieces of metal are bagged up and disposed of along with the bottles, shoes and carpets

I've heard of that happening but never seen it before. There are a lot of babies there.

what's still flowering in your garden?

There's a lot of flowers still, salvias, chrysanths, cyclamen, nicotiana sylvestris, afew crocosmia, some sort of dianthus that I'll have to try and ID, nerines. We haven't had a proper frost yet

Weather Forecasting? Don't get me started

Lie in a darkened room Mark and accept that totally accurate weather forecasting isn't here yet. 

Predictions are based on extrapolation from previous years, a better word would be guess

Thanks Dove

I think it's probably a female marsh harrier,
