Well its been a while since I have posted. The intention was to update regularly, but so far I have failed. We were very busy before Christmas and since have had a lot of illness, thats my excuse anyway!

We now know who the regular visitors are to the Keepers Cottage wildlife garden. The stoat can be seen most days, either in the woods behind or in the garden. We feed it on chicken bones, but I havnt managed to get a decent picture yet.
The pheasant, we have named him Hoppity, finds refuge and food in our garden daily and now comes when called. He looks a bit of a state as he has a limp, hence the name, and a battered tail.

We see hares regularly in the field opposite but have only seen it in the garden twice. We now have both male and female Great Spotted Woodpeckers visiting the garden daily.

The siskins are an occasional visitor....

..and look what the gales blew in on 4th March! A beautiful yellowhammer, quite common over farmland but not in gardens.

The lunar eclipse on 3rd March was brilliant, the skies are so clear here and the stars stunning, no light pollution.

Thats all for now, come and visit our new forum, we could do with some more members!
