I will be keeping up the garden watch during these times and will even be updating from local walks these will include Lutley Wedge / Mere's Fields (for the older people who remember them) / Wassell Grove and Oldnall lane.
Will now commence the redesigning of the back garden but will not be touching any areas being used by birds for nest material or nesting.
So why not put your own garden sightings on here or even start a new thread on here so people can see what you have in your gardens.
Going well and the refurbishment of the garden starting tomorrow so more time to watch the skies
Hope you are all staying safe and please remember there my be someone close to you that could do with someone to talk to if it's on the phone or through a window just take care and we'll get through this together.
