February in your Wildlife-Friendly Garden

By Rob 5 years ago

It’s time to get off the couch, already six weeks have passed since the shortest day and in the garden there are signs of the approaching spring. Snowdrops are out and bulbs are shooting up amongst the winter wreckage with increasing rapidity. The birds and wildlife are also more active as light levels and temperatures increase. So, it’s time to move on from indoor thinking, planning and biscuit eating and get outside as the garden is coming to life again

MYTHBUSTING - Myth 1 - I can't feed my garden birds because I have a cat...

By Rob 5 years ago

In his younger days our cat Noah was a keen hunter... He even caught and dealt with a Fox Cub once! However, we imposed a strict cat curfew to reduce his impact and now aged 18 and nearly blind - he is now no threat to anything... except maybe Marj - the Cairn Terrier who he is determined to keep in order! Thanks for Mark Eccleston for the fab Photo!
