Old red-eyes is back

ORG_DSC07085A Collared Dove has made her precarious nest of a few twigs, amongst the honeysuckle on top of our trellis archway. She is sitting on two eggs.




Pot luck!

We were sorting through our tree pots on Sunday in preparation for next Saturday’s NGS open garden event and were about to move the trestle …..

Phil spotted her just in time …

We should have some new blackbird chicks very soon!

Prior to discovery, we had been watering with the hose so she’s had a daily drenching and still she remained. Phil has already named the chicks (answers on a postcard please) but there will be no Rush to return your entries!

Labour of l’oeuf

George laid her first egg yesteday. It was a 3 hour labour and was heralded by much squawking and clucking ….a perfect little egg !
