Wildlife In The Garden

What better way to follow on from yesterday’s post than with a post all about wildlife in the garden. We have a variety of wildlife that visit our garden, some are regulars and then there’s the pheasant that’s just visited once.

fledgling blackbird

This was one of the coolest days ever, I happened to be outside just when the young blackbirds were fledging the nest, it was wonderful to see. One even ran right past me just inches from my leg as I was sat on the floor in the garden.

pheasant

This pheasant just appeared on the fence one day, totally out of the blue we just saw it sat there then it came into our garden, it was wonderful to see as it took a wander around the garden.
