    LOL @ KT53!! 

    You're right nut,if I'm honest I didn't really start gardening until my 30s (48 now) and experience is the key.I know most of the more obvious plants like daffodils,tulips etc.,its the more obscure species.I don't often blow my own trumpet but birds are my specialist subject.I was very keen on them right from an early age...

    Thank you Daintiness,his name was Scamp and we lost him in March 2012. One night he went charging off down the garden like he always did.But being dark he didn't see the bird feeder resting on its metal pole.It was a freak accident but he must have hit it head on.He had lost the use of his front right and back right legs,the vet said it was an impact injury and had fractured the vertebrae at the top of his spine.He would have needed keeping in a cage,carrying outside and painkillers all for the rest of his life.Plus his lifespan would have been shortened anyway.So we had to let him go,the vet told us we were doing the right thing but our hearts were broken.He's buried in the garden and his grave is watched over by Centaurea Montana and Cowslips.His picture keeps him alive for me,in my heart at least.

    That's so sad- what a horrible thing to have happened...

    RIP Scamp
