It’s funny Bernie how people don’t realise what goes on in their gardens. They do gardening have lovely flower beds, love the birds flying by but don’t realise what goes on right under their noses.
We moved here 3 years ago and since moving in we’ve put a lot of work into making our garden beautiful and wildlife friendly. We didn’t bring the wildlife with us when we moved it was here already! Once the neighbours saw what was coming they were amazed and now really enjoy watching them with us. We have feeders near their windows so they can watch the birds and squirrels and have regular updates on the hogs, frog, newts etc… It pays to talk to your neighbours about what you see, they will then hopefully do things to encourage wildlife themselves. It doesn’t have to be anything big – a bird feeder, a bowl of water, a log pile or leaf pile better still both, a mini pond, bird box. We can all link together to make a wildlife super highway network.
Love the fox and hoggy dining together, your place sounds amazing. Unfortunately we have the neighbours cats and hoggy feeding together (but only if the hoggys let them).
