Evening Primrose

A few Wild Flowers around the RSPB Dungeness Reserve today Evening Primrose Probably this is the most seen flower around the Reserve at this time of the year, a fine yellow colourful plant self seeding as it spreads. These will flower between June and September gradually increasing each individual bloom one after the other. Great […]

Bird Table in June

With the weather the way it is I decided not to venture out today but instead, just watch all the juvenile birds there are in the Garden at present. It seems the breeding around here is going well! Busy is an understatement, regardless of the rain they were back and forth, some with their Mother’s […]

Wild Field Daisies

Bit of a dodgy hip today so my walk down the Fields was mainly spent looking down rather than looking up, didn’t fancy a fall! This turned out to be a more pleasant walk than I expected; the wildlife buffer around the fields seems to be attracting all sorts of flora which in turn is […]

sedge-warbler-dungeness

The Woodpeckers appear to have hatched two young one’s and there’s ample families of Coal Tits, Great Tits, Blue Tits, Robins and more – more common Garden Birds that is. Thus […]

Hedgehog eating cat food

So fascinated by this I watched the virtually the whole time and came up with a few threories (probably all been said before […]
