I’m totally understanding people wanting to celebrate bonfire night . But these days it’s all weekend .
We worry about our pets and reassure them .
But what about the poor wildlife ?
I’ve just been letting our dogs out in the garden and I’ve heard a tawny owl calling out … several times .
Obviously in distress …. why can’t we stick to organized displays only ?
I agonized for weeks after Millie but Archie was so stressed on his own .
But I’m pleased to say Ellie has definitely turned things around , not only for us but more importantly Archie ( the main man )
his inner youth is coming back … he’s even starting to be a bit of a shit , which if you’ve ever owned spaniels is the best feeling ever
We were going to buy Ellie horns for her Halloween costume but we decided not to bother 😈
Well it’s been such a mild day today here in Manchester . And there’s been a ridiculous amount of ladybirds around .
I’ve noticed over the past few years these swarms appearing briefly around October just as they’re getting ready to hibernate .
Awesome to see . As long as you don’t mind them landing all over you that is !
So how many starlings can fit on one bird feeder ?!!!
Our daughter and her boyfriend bought a new house this week. With the house, came a wild south facing garden. A wild garden is nice but not this wild!
Over the next few months it looks like I’ve got a new project on my hands. Step one: prune the buddleia.
Of course, with winter coming up fast we are limited at what we can do now- so it will all be about pruning plants back ready for the spring time.
In the meantime, I’ve lent them my wildlife camera so we can see if any animals show up at night!
