September and October saw huge numbers of red admiral butterflies .  The fine spring weather meant they could breed in huge numbers.

Book me soon, if you want me to clear excess vegetation from your pond in  October.  Please remember to keep fallen leaves out of your ponds and drains.

Barn Owl, Sept17

Enjoy the sight of a barn owl, recently visiting a garden I care for.  These owls eat small rodents and insects, whilst they aren’t preening! This is a CCTV picture.
