Bird, wildlife and flower log, 7-13 October 2013

A rose which Steve cut back a couple of months ago is doing really well. It had needed a real cut back for a while and now it is out in flower again and has lots of new buds on it! I was going to take a photo today but the weather isn't that great for photographs, I wonder if it will stop raining at all today...

So a scrapbook layout today instead of a photo. This kit was created by Gill, Seaside Crafter, for a Daisytrail challenge and is fantastic, it is called Wild Autumn. The photo is one I took a few weeks ago.

Mr Black has been round with his youngster, but I've only seem them a couple of times this week. Again lots of chaffinches and greenfinches. Although I've not noted a youngster crow, I think there has been one. We now seem to regularly have family crow visit. I think there are two adults and one youngster. The thing that strikes me about them is how large they are! They are also quite skitty and fly off at any movement. Luckily I haven't seen them eating any other little birds. A few years ago my parents saw two crows pulling apart a robin. This is something I hope I won't witness in the garden.

  1. Oh have you still got young blackbirds, that's quite late isn't it - maybe they've got in an extra brood or so with the weather being quite mild for the time of year.
    Love your photo and your layout.. Gill x :)
