A bit of a catch-up from the garden

OK, no excuses, things have been busy at home and work the last couple of weeks, PR jnr and his partner setting up home and the various trials and tribulations attributed to that, plus Covid19 making things more awkward.

We actually manged to get and see them in their new home, the first time we've seen them this year!

We were due to go down the weekend after lockdown....

So, a few (beware, I do twist the truth a little from time to time ) photos of garden activity since my last.

The first batch are from 5th July

A goldfinch proudly parading atop a neighbouring tree.

The ponds lillys and fish in fine form.

Juvenile Robin

Small White Butterfly

A fly on the wall? 

Magpie, adult and juniour

Juvenile House Sparrow

"Have I really got to get through that lot!"

And the inevitable robin

And one from the 9th July, a lonely snail (one of many overlooked) making its way across the grass after overnight rain...

And just a very few, from 11 July

Sunrise was overtaken by the moon that morning...

And finally, for now, the sunset at PR jnr's place

I've a few more, particularly the LTT's which I'll share very soon.

  • I love the baby Robin peeking coyly from behind the feeder. For a large bird Magpies are remarkably adept at hanging on to feeders when there's fat balls on offer. Nice set Mike.

  • A good selection of stuff. I keep meaning to look for some good photo opportunities of snails, but never seem to get around to it. Nice Comma and Goldfinch, too.

  • Lovely set of photos and all your garden visitors; the little robin at the feeder is really cute plus the flutterbys, attractive snail/shell and tropical looking Goldfinch. Good luck to PR jnr. and partner in their new home.

  • Thanks folks, and apologies for the delay in responding, even though I'm back on Furlough, things have been a bit busy, but in a good way.
