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!
A thread for little critters

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.

Not so much little critters, but otters have been spied fishing in Grafton Lock, Oxon this week
