Garden Wars

Mostly cloudy, 20º, light rain showers, negligible wind.
The garden has been a challenge today as one of the Grey Squirrels is able to jump from the ground high enough to grab one of the feeders and drag itself up. As a subsequence of this I have removed, the two lower feeders to see if that will stop him. Let battle commence!

The garden has been very quiet for the past few days, maybe more insect food out there now. Wood Pigeons, Collared Doves and 1 or 2 Stock Doves still visiting. Finches have become less frequent, only Blue and Great Tits regular along with a daily visit from a Great-spotted Woodpecker.

A brief trip to Lollingdon hill pulled no surprises, just the usual.

Watching the Portugal vs. Spain match this evening and the only moment that got me off my seat was a Blackbird chasing a Tawny Owl through the garden and into the meadow.

Hedgehog frequent in garden now.
