Last night, after tea with said inlaws, it was raining when me and Himself came home to find a stone coloured frog sitting outside the gate ready to greet us. We shushed him back in away from the road. Hope he found some nice fat slugs!
My inlaws had a jay in their garden a few days ago. I am very jealous.
A reliable source tells me that jays are low feeders and will eat peanuts, suet and household scraps.
The solar lights are struggling as the foliage grows bigger. We have a very tightly packed secret garden and it's difficult to find places to put the solar lights where they get enough sunlight. The Royal Horticultural Society says that "solar-powered lights emit a very dim light that is unlikely to affect wildlife". I've yet to see a pole dancing frog strutting her stuff under the colour changing disco-style solar lights so I suspect they may be right.
