Just divided my rhubarb plant and put a couple of pieces in neighbours' gardens. Mr Robin turned up to help, with his beady eye on the worms!

The turtle dove has actually eaten by its self. I have never had a turtle dove do that before.  I was hand feeding it yesterday when it suddenly put its head in the bowl of seeds and started to eat. so that is one daily job I don't have to do any more. It still can't balance perfectly but is improving.

 

Norway, I had 2 robins on the patio a couple of days ago. They only ever come in the winter. But yesterday i found one dead. I suspect one of my cats. It's sad but the robins are too tame.

 A few minutes ago i was in my bedroom when something flew past me. An excited kitten also saw it. It was a tiny bird - a young great ### and it perched on top of the wardrobe. I put the kitten out of the room and opened the window. The bird was gone in a flash! I have no idea how it got in as all outside doors and all windows were shut and If one of my cats had brought it in through the cat flap I don't think it would have been in a fit state to fly around. Actualy it didn't seem panicked.

 

Talking of little critters, my snails are doing nicely. I found another very small one in the dustbin this morning so that went into the nursery box.
