We all know who he is the little cartoon character you see on the TV well this is a little story about another woody we have visiting our garden
Lets start here, this dovecote was a Christmas Present I made my wife a few years ago after she asked for one, Being as we did not was Pigeons nesting in it I made the doors so that the same birds could use it. and that is what they did, at least the blue tits did which was very pleasing to see. A couple of mornings ago we were woken to a loud drumming noise which sounded like the birdhouse. Looking out the window showed nothing but when we got up my wife went to see what was going on
and this is what she found, peck marks around the holes
which were big
I finally caught the little blighter in action
Since then I think he has been looking for a mate and chasing off other birds but the starlings have noticed the holes and are now trying to take up residence. I will let you know what happend.

Bit of a rush to find what to post today so went to the garden for inspiration
On the patio a rambling rose still had leaves growing on it
A magnolia in a flower bed is budding well
This one will be in flower in another month or so
In another flower bed bulbs can bed seen sticking their tops through the soil
Not far away in the lawn daffodils are showing themselves
One with a flower bud
Lots of flowers seeded and they are growing now
Some of the roses are budding
snowdrops show their presence below the Olive Tree
And in the flower bed beside it a clump of snowdrops show that they will be flowering very soon.

So this were the photos I had thought about posting as we came up to New Years Eve but I managed to get some that day. It was a shame not to post these as I felt it was a nicer sunset that new years eve.

This week another update on the on the new development that is happening in our village, I thought it worth looking to see if the show homes were any where near being finished. The link here will show you how it looked back at the end of November To fill a couple of Friends in who do not live around here this filed is behind what we knew as the slaughter house near Blackhalls Farm, this shot is from where East End Farm ended.
Since last time grass has been laid and the fencing moved near the road
Looking up the new road at the bungalows that look like they are near completion
This way shows down the road towards East End Farm
