Last week I went up for my fortnightly stint of gardening for my Mum. She lives in the village of Colesbourne up in the Cotswolds. She has 1.2 acres of very wildlife friendly garden which slopes down to the River Churn.
It's a lovely part of the country with plenty to keep me enthusiastic as to what I might see there. On this occasion, whilst digging over the vegetable plot, I had a Tawny Owl calling, a Mistle Thrush singing at full throttle, Siskins overhead with their mounful call and a Sparrowhawk being mobbed by the local pair of Kestrels. She also gets some great birds on her feeders!
