Isn't nature cruel?

Saturday continued the mild spell of weather. An early morning shower meant a damp start to the day but it soon dried up as the sun came out. The day was spoilt somewhat by a strong to gale force wind.

Sue’s covered the details of the shenanigans going on in our pond here. I’m amazed the fish could get at the frog spawn in such shallow water but they would appear to have eaten the entire lot in yesterday’s photo. Not that it’s stopped our frogs producing heaps more so we will have some really well fed fish at this rate. It didn’t stop the fish begging for more food when I walked by the pond this morning either.

Rather late this year I got round to cleaning out our nest boxes. 
The sparrow terrace at the far end has been moved from another part of the garden. The sparrow terrace between the two windows had two nests from last year to be removed. We think one blue tit and one great tit took up residence last year rather than any sparrows. The remaining box is our camera box which last spring produced a brood of blue tits. I wonder if they’ll be so well used again this year.

  1. I think I need to move my nest box, it's never had any residents.
