From Winter to Summer, Jan-June 2014 in the Garden
Thought it about time I did a garden update! Here are some photos taken in and around our garden between January and June 2014
A brief glimpse of a Brambling
Vole caught in the live trap before being released unharmed
Buzzard on our gate post..
..and on the gate
Digger in the snow preparing for the new electric pole
We got a bit worried when this happened after the awful blizzards and snow drifts last year!
Frogspawn in the pond
Great Diving Beetle
We have baby bunnies!
Lots of them!
Male Hen Harrier from the window!
Generator whilst new pole was fitted, I was glad when it was gone!
Rainbow and Rook
Not in the garden but locally, a Treecreeper on a birdfeeder, a rare sight!
Caught in the bird food!
Another batch of baby bunnies!
Click Beetle Ctenicera cuprea
Looks like the Great-tits are nesting just outside the kitchen window!
Got up early one morning to hear a strange noise in the living room, this Jackdaw had manage to get trapped down the chimney!
Pete got the chimney sweeping rods to try and push it back up but it managed to find its own way out into the living room!
Not too much mess or damage and it was none the worse for its ordeal apart from the odd feather out of place. It posed on my hands for a while then flew off into the trees!
Loricera pilicornis I think
Orange-tip butterfly on bluebell
Ratty desperately trying to reach the feeders!
…in my hanging basket
Hoverfly Rhingia campestris
Newt in the pond
We have Mason bees…
…in our beehouse
Common Blue Damselfly
Fasciation on cotoneaster
Bee on Geranium
Large Red Damselfly

This is what it came out of
Poppy "Miss Perry"
I can see a little face lurking!
Yellow Loosestrife has taken over the garden!
