At last it’s a mite cooler, after the last few weeks of that baking weather and didn’t the poor old gardens need that rain? I would imagine the farmers were also pleased.
I’m sorry to report no birds to speak of, I am only getting one Gold Finch at a time along with a Solitary Collared Dove and even the Hedgehogs seem to have moved on. Hardly any of their food has been eaten when we look each morning.
But I’m glad to say the foxes are still eating us out of house and home. We are getting at least two visiting, possibly three and they all look in very good condition. They are lovely orange/red colour with white under parts and big bushy tails but are very nervous while eating because of the security light being on.
As in the last report a poor year for Butterflies, the last couple of months mostly white Butterflies very few coloured species.
