So who visits the garden?

 

Well most nights we have numerous hedgehogs visit to take advantage of the food I put out each evening for them. I have seen up to three at the same time. It didn't take long before the local foxes became nightly visitors as well! The big suprise came in 2009 when a badger was caught on camera, I say a suprise because I really have no idea where she would come from, the nearest wooded area being a very built-up mile or so away. During 2010 she visited regularly and in 2011 visited most nights from March to November. Sadly, however, this meant there were less hedgehog visits.

 

I have, so far, witnessed 27 species of birds in the garden, who come to feed and drink. Some also nest.

 

Here are some pictures taken in the garden
