Great Tit!

I’m sorry I couldn’t resist it, I wonder how many hits I’ll receive with that title!

Last year, after we had managed to put up My Shed, hubby quickly attached a bird box for me, it was very late in the season and we had no takers.

Today as I was sat there slurping my soup, I heard this rummaging and ever so soft chirruping and I thought, “Oooh, we have babies” and quietly crept around to the back of the shed and found we have indeed got babies. So I positioned myself some feet away and waited for the perfect shot. I won’t show you the outtakes, there were many.. I believe its a Great Tit, its certainly quite a large bird (for its type) and has just a little bit of difficulty squeezing through its front door.


Magic Beans!
Well I hope they will be. These are the runners and climbing beans that are desperate to get into the ground. I looked at them carefully and I think they may have just been caught with a touch of frost last night. They are going in the greenhouse tonight so are they are nice and snug, just in case.

Lettuces that are being grown as a catch crop where the beans are just about to go.

An Iceburg lettuce. I’ve not grown these before and from the way that they are coming on, they will be very good.

And a tiny, tiny pea pod. Such excitement!

    We’ve got a robin nesting in the shed at work. At one point the nest was propped between the lawn mower handle and the door. Our maintainence guy attched a basket to the door so the nest is safe now which is good as the eggs have hatched.
