The Goldfinches rarely use the feeder near the kitchen these days preferring the one near the bottom of the garden. As usual the noisy sparrows have to make themselves heard.
There were lots of seven spot ladybirds in the garden yesterday. This couple were doing their bit to make sure there will be a constant supply of hungry Ladybirds to keep down the aphids. I found a fascinating description of the mating ritual of the Ladybird on Andres Rasmussen's blog HERE. Wow - they can keep it up for up to four and a half hours!
At least one Hedgehog is visiting each night now. I can't make my mind up whether there are two or three different ones.
I have a feeling that the Blue Tits have chosen to nest somewhere else as there has been only one very short visit in the past fortnight.
Bobby sends a big sloppy 'thank you' to all who sent him birthday wishes. Have a great weekend watching the wildlife around you.
