HI Nic

I’d love to see the stretched out sleeper, hopefully your weather’s cooler now & he’s going where he should be. Haven’t seen any early hogs since the hot weather faded away here or met any waiting in the feeder in the evening just find crumbs in the morning & a few biscuits.

Haha, yes, a dapper rat! Very strange sight he was.

Mrs Blackbird is the odd looking bird here, she’s been showing up with incredible fluffy feathery skirts as if she’s about to do the cancan & feathers sticking up at peculiar angles all over the place. Too exhausted to spend time in front of the mirror…… Hope you Mr B’s head gets refeathered by winter.

You have more hogs than I’ve been seeing, must be satisfying but hope you get a lady or two as well. Lot of work taking place on the railways very nearby here too, being electrified so night time there’s a lot going on down the bank. Think they disturb the foxes more than anybody.

Lot of bat activity here at night & I’m so happy to say that after last year seeing virtually no bees my garden is currently awash with them in all shapes & sizes & lots of other pollinators too. Escallionia Pink Elle in front & back gardens are smothered in them every day, plus lavender, fuchsia, honeysuckle, things I can’t remember & several herbs I grow to flower for the pollinators.

Squirrels are amazingly agile, fast too to escape the cats & dogs.
