GGJeanWe are great Barr and have Barr Beacon and Sutton Park on our doorsteps. Used to have lots of hedgehogs but don't see any these days. Our ponds attract wildlife too Bob.
Our local Sparrowhawk raided one of our pigeon nests. It came in at lightning speed and the carnage took microseconds. It also took one of our doves - I went in the kitchen to make a cuppa and it was plucking it on the path three metres away from the window.Today it looked like a sparrowhawk landed in my garden with a baby bird in its claws. Immediately 2 blackbirds swooped down and the sparrowhawk flew off with them following him. It left a few little feathers from the landing. Is this an usual thing for a sparrowhawk?
I thought about having a cave in the garden. After a recce to the likes of B&Q, I noticed that it was over £1k for a flimsy shed made of the thinnest of wood slats. I thought I could do much better myself so have started another garden project. Built on stilts on a sloping site, I have the basic framework erected and it is all nice and level. So far so good .....
