We had started some renovation work on the garden earlier in the year, when we had a dry day, which wasn’t very often, so being at home on lock down means we can carry on sorting the garden out. Many of the shrubs had got out of hand and a standard Eleagnus bush had finally expired and was lying across the garden it was a shame but it had to go. We were reluctant to get rid of it as the Sparrows and other birds love to use it to hide in we have been nursing it for a couple of years but we couldn’t save it any more. We wanted to dispose of it before any nesting and checked it first before we cut it up.
We decided to have a bonfire in the late evening to get rid of the tree and the plants we had cut back but when we went down we spotted the Roe deer in the field behind us. Of course the bonfire had to wait while I got the camera and took a few pictures until they moved into the next field and we could carry on with the bonfire.
It was a glorious sunset as we carried on with the bonfire.
I put my trail camera out overnight to see any Hedgehog action and they didn’t disappoint there are two on the video and then a little Wood Mouse taking advantage of the free food.
