Skating on Thin Ice

Winter Sports

Small groups were out on the ice in the bay today  – rather hoping that it is think enough to skate on.

Why we are not tidy

Feeding the Birds

There is a growing awareness (still a long way to go) that tidying the garden as we go into winter is a bad thing to do. Leaving our garden “scruffy” until spring means that birds like these American Goldfinches can find something to eat without needing to rely on our feeders.

These birds were eating seeds from a small-flowered form of sunflower.
