A small post today. I don’t seem to be out and about much despite the lovely spring weather. But I have had the joy of a lot of wildlife in the garden. We have regular visitors of the usual small birds to the bird feeders, robins (we have one that has learned to hover to get at the seeds), green finches, a variety of tits and also more sparrows than I’ve seen in a while. The ‘less than neat’ borders in the garden attract the ‘rummagers’ of the bird world, so we have blackbirds and the occasional thrush.
We also have a variety of foxes that turn up for table scraps and food that DH puts out each night. They used to visit even when we had the dogs but now that the terriers are gone the foxes are even bolder. They are happy to come right up to the back door for food, sitting waiting in the middle of the lawn watching my husband fill the bowl. You can see how quickly canines could be tamed. I realise many people see foxes as vermin, but I have to admire their tenacity and flexibility in a world taken over by humans, roads and buildings.
