Most of the rest of the morning we spent watching wildlife in our garden - a pair of rabbits who are getting increasingly bold in their hopping about and exploring the garden, and plenty of birds who are becoming regular visitors to the feeding station we put up when we moved in. As well as the usual blue tits, great tits, coal tits etc that we used to see in our old house, we are also now seeing goldfinches and greenfinches who never visited us in Herts... very exciting! We've been leaving food out to see if we can tempt foxes or badgers to the garden, but although it's been eaten, we won't know for sure if that's down to a local cat or something more wild until we can set up a camera trap. That won't be this evening, due to the forecast gale-force winds, but I'm hoping soon - there can't be THAT many unpacked boxes left to search...
bold squirrel (he came right up next to our patio doors)
we watched the crows and magpies for ages, all fighting over the pile of peanuts and trying to scare each other off. The crows were quite aggressive but I think the magpies managed to carry off the greater stash in the end
