the cardboard wasn't such a good idea. As the birds flew down to it the board flapped, it also flapped with the wind so the birds didn't like it. But it flattened the snow so they could see the food. We've had a pied wagtail in the garden eating the dried mealworms, he was lovley to see!
I've had another look at the ponds, I don't think they have "leaked" I think the sides of the ponds just look lower because of the snow around the edge, at least I hope that's what it is! Hopefully some of the snow will thaw today (fingers crossed) then I can have a good look. One bit of good news. The sweet peas I planted in the autumn seem to have survived the cold snap in the little seed house. phew!!
Don't make me get my flying monkees!
