My Garden Wildlife
My bird list is as follows:
Long Tailed Tit
In addition to this we also get:
Mice (house and wood)
Red Foxes (their den is in my neighbour’s garden)
I hear there are Badgers nearby somewhere, but this could be hearsay.
Song Thrush in the snow.
Charm of Goldfinch
Mr & Mrs Bullfinch
Fledgling Blue Tit
As well as the birds and mammals, I endeavour to attract as much insect life as possible, especially the pollinators; Bees and Hoverflies.
And other gardener’s friends that help keep down the aphids; Ladybirds and Lacewings.
Last but not least, the Butterflies… No garden is complete without Butterflies fluttering around. Being an old romantic at heart they are a must have, and the garden feels dead without the insects going about their business and I dearly miss the Bees over the Winter months.
Butterflies I have seen in the garden are:
I also get a lot of Cinnabar Moths, thanks to the plentiful Ragwort around the garden.
Of course I also have other wildlife, and even had some Grasshoppers in the garden in the summer of 2010.
