The local wildlife seem to think spring is here, the blackbirds are awaking us with their song and at dusk the forest is alive with birdsong, even the pheasants are now calling, we have even seen a couple of hares.
Bumble bees are feasting on the pollen of the crocus, and our female rabbit seems to think she is pregnant and has started building her nest, pulling up mouthfuls of grass to make a nice warm haven.
We still have to pick up five more fruit trees which we need to do soon as the buds of the trees are now swelling. So far we have planted over two hundred trees, bushes and shrubs, hopefully this will encourage plenty of wildlife to the garden.
