It’s been a while, but I’m back, with a fresh house and garden to provide new nature opportunities. That’s not why I moved of course, but all the same…

I’ve already dug a pond, and seen a fair few things. Notably the following.

  • A fox, bold as brass on the lawn in the middle of the day.
  • A nuthatch on a couple of occasions, which I think comes down from the woodland I can see from the garden.
  • A hedgehog, just the once so far.
  • A muntjac deer walking down the street and into the pub car park. Quite surreal.
  • Pond life: dragonflies, frogs by the bucketload, including one that hopped into the house, pond skaters, water boatmen etc.
  • Lots of jackdaws and parakeets. They roost in the woods – an incredible noise as they return each evening.
  • Just the one smooth newt, under a rock.

I will be blogging about the pond build soon.

UPDATE: at least one person was wondering where in the country my garden is. It is in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

  1. Welcome back! Where is it? I recall back in the 50’s there was a rugby touring side called Leicestershire Foxes so not so much a surprise. Down in Kent we get one now and again where we are, I think after the squirrels. Best!

  2. Good to have your blog back in action.
    I look forward to reading about the visitors to your pond.
