November already , it can’t be ?. This year is really flying by and soon thoughts will turn to the C word ( Christmas ). Today is my first proper day back in the hide since way back in early September and it’s really good to be back. The pre winter mini facelift has been finished . New extended side shelf’s fitted and a few tree stakes replaced with taller more substantial versions.
The meadow itself is very quiet. The usual suspects are here , Blue tit , Great tit , Robin and Chaffinch , plus the wren , squirrel , woodpecker and pigeon. The meadow is now in full retreat, flowers are all gone and all that’s left is the grass . So it’s now time to start planning for next year. A few more trees to plant and about 5 metres of hedgerow to replace.
