I did what you suggested yesterday and built a log and turf pile behind the pond to encourage insects etc. I was pleased to see when I pulled up a log that was already there that there were loads of insects despite the dry weather. I gave it a good soaking and at least one of the resident hogs was rooting around there last night. I’ll continue to water the pile while the dry weather continues.
On another matter I previously posted I’ve seen no sign of the fox for three weeks so maybe the motion sensor lights have sent it elsewhere, although he might just have found a better food source. Thanks for your sound advice again!
