I think this is it for this year - Some areas for the Grandchildren while accommodating Birds, Bees and Spiders.

The problem this year has been birds in the loft - to make way for the houses behind us trees, shrubs and hedgerows were removed.

The Thrushes and Starlings had to find somewhere to go. First a loft over the road and then ours when they were evicted from there.

Quote:Found this lovely red beetle in the garden down by the nettle patch on the weekend. Disguise isn't one of its attributes. I think it's a black headed cardinal beetle.

Extended family moved into our bird box. They might be tree bumblebees. Industrious little creatures, but the lady of the house is not impressed.

Probably an optical illusion.

Do newly born birds fly / flap their wings faster than the adults ?

really nice having breakfast outside at the moment, watching those those baby birds who have not yet mastered the art of flying but at least none of them have flown into the kitchen / dining room closed windows

First sightings of the juvenile starlings today. And some sparrow juveniles. Let the pandemonium begin. Smile i wish they'd keep to the trees rather than the lawn though.
