Well despite the building work at our back fence we still have many 'guests' for meals throughout the day

Nice, not so sure about the rat though.:) Think we have one just started appearing, hopefully the neighbour's cat will get it.

That is nothing, we had a family of four but I have trapped three in five days since the snow arrived, (the photo is from last week before the snow) the whole family were grubbing around, even climbing the bamboo and leaping onto the bird feeder after I put anti-climb paint on the feeder pole I thought I had the last one yesterday in the cage however a hungry blackbird had tripped it. It was unharmed when I released it but boy did it tell me off when I released it.

It was a beautiful sunny day Monday, the skies were clear, the sun and moon were out and the birds were enjoying spiralling into the sky on the updraft, possibly only for one day but spring had sprung and mother nature knew it

I think they are just pleased to break surface after the slightly chilly (catastrophic freeze, for our Southern friends) weather of the past few weeks.

Frog mature content

I've just set up the wildlife cam onto the pond , not because the frogs have commenced with their shenanians but I want to check on what has been eating the spawn for the past three years, or if it just disappears naturally. I suspect a fox (or foxes) since there were footprints on the side of the pond that amasses the most about this time of year but not been able to confirm where it goes.

Expect a few explicit images in the next few days.
