January 2016 Putting a bit back!

Spent the last few weekends putting up bird and bat boxes on my smallholding.  Will be so excited if I get some occupation, especially if I get a Tawny Owl, Barn Owl or Kestrel.

January 2016 Great to see a new bird. The UK rarity the Penduline Tit

This is a new one for me.  Had to go along and find it as it has turned up only a few miles from my home. There are less than a handful in the UK.  The beautiful Penduline Tit
