Welcome to the blog of my Wild Flower Meadow for 2015.
A bit late starting this year due to nasty persistent virus that was so difficult to eradicate.
Sadly this may be the last year I may be keeping a blog for my meadow . The house and acre of land will be going on the market in the not too distant future . The new owners may put the land back to grazing or development who knows .
I sincerely hope not.
I hope it will be as loved and nurtured as It has been since I started it in 2006
In the mean time I will endeavour to keep the blog up to date with lots of pictures showing how the plants and wildlife play out in 2015 .I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I do producing it.
Please pop back from time to time to see the new additions and feel free to add any comments

Nesting Birds

House Sparrow

Opportunist sparrow stealing a piece of dog hair just combed from my molting Akita.
We have more than birds than usual  nesting around the house and garden  . The Magpies are in the air vent in the old granary , Blue tits in the nest boxes on the telegraph pole ,Hedge Sparrows  nesting in the bay tree. Blackbirds are  in climbers over the potting shed.
Pied Wagtails  between paving slabs stacked behind the house . House sparrows under the eaves of the out buildings . Swallows above the workshop and Great Tits in the slot of an old gate post by the road . there are also a pair of Chaffinches  I know they are near by but haven’t seen where they are nesting.
