As I am no longer at Ladysmock and back in London one of the first things I have noticed is the lack of birds.
It got me thinking about all the species I saw in the four and a half years spent there.
I will add to this list as I recall them!
Seen in the garden -
Long Tailed Tit
Dunnock (Hedge Sparrow)
Great Spotted Woodpecker
Seen (over) and heard from the garden
Other animals seen in the garden
Badger (while watching little owls at dusk one appeared three feet away from me).
Deer (not sure what type - two walked up the drive one evening!)
Toad (a regular in the greenhouse during winter)
Snake - moved too quickly to see but most likely a Grass Snake.
