Peaceful setting with beautiful garden

It's been a long time since an entry, various reasons, the main one being the website has been updated and I have been finding it difficult to make entries on any of the pages. So the blog has rather been ignored.
Hopefully it will be more regular entries now.
On the bird front, red kites numbers seen at a time are over 20, mainly feeding on the dead phaesants I put out.
For the first time we have had a bullfinch on our bird feeders. Nuthatches are on the feeders in larger numbers than seen before.
Had 8 pied flycatchers nest in the wood, the highest we have had with 39 fledging.
Haven't had a garden open day this year, but it has been a pretty good year in the garden. Lots of real success's potatoes, blueberries,
strawberries, redcurrants, sweet corn and apples all been really succesful.
Left the best news to last, having placed the wildlife camera overlooking the small stream where numerous birds bathe, very delighted to catch an otter on the camera on two occassions so far.
