Hi Nic

Nice to hear from you.

I hope it isn’t a foreign frog as I think they eat our native ones particularly if they’re large, sounds peculiar whatever it is. Released into the wild frogs often turn up, our milder weather probably suits them. We’ve always had lots of red eared terrapins in Cardiff since the 80’s due to Ninja Turtle mania & the subsequent release of difficult to care for stinky terrapins who grow to the size of a dinner plate if cared for properly. The council used to round them up & put them in the Tropical greenhouse, don’t know if they still do.

There’s on & off hog feeding going on, some nights all gone & tell tale crumbs left (& muddy foot prints) others hardly touched, don’t know what they’re up to. The magpies get the kitten biscuits soaked in a water bowl to try to get them to leave the little birds alone. A gorgeous massive glossy crow has cottoned on too.

House martins, how lovely, hope the blue tits found a more suitable nesting site so they could have their nest back. Reducing feeding the birds, fill up at night ready for the morning then just a few inches in the mid afternoon to encourage them to look elsewhere, marauding screeching starlings & feral pigeons appearing in too great numbers. Love watching the babies bathing together though, sparrows too.

Squirrels are entertaining us, a baby with a clearly striped tail (imaginatively called him Stripe after the Gremlin!) as good as takes nuts from me, doesn’t like walnuts apparently. Luckily he doesn’t share Gremlin Stripe’s violent tendencies.
