    Used to have lots of greenfinches but they got succumbed to that illness going round as I haven't seen any for several years.   We do get chaffinches though and a full range of sparrows and tits (except long-tailed which I've only seen once).

    Depending on the season we also get lots of small brown jobs such as robins, wrens, warblers, siskins and so on plus blackbirds and fieldfares but not mistle or song thrush.  Then there's spotted woodpeckers and turtle doves and jays and jackdaws and crows plus an occasional sparrowhawk swooping in.

    Very few butterflies last year despite all sorts of nectar plants for them and the nettle patch I leave.   

    Our blueberries haven't blossomed yet.

    Hi all

    with all my digging and garden reshuffle I have had a blackbird and a robin as my best friends clearing up as I go.

    Its great to see the smaller birds doing well as I am sick of the sight of wood pidgeons and magpies (rats with wings)

    happy gardening
