The final results of my nest boxes was a record all round with 18 nests made, 136 eggs and 98 fledged. The last one to go was the nest of the Pied Flycatcher who has sung so long and loud in search of a mate, finally meeting with success and the 5 chicks all fledged.
Sadly the nest we found in the woodland garden, which was a Spotted Flycatcher, the 5 eggs hatched but something took the chicks.
Found a bat on the lawn one morning with its wings outstretched, unusual to see how wide the wingspan is, I picked it up and it was still alive and then it flew off.
The roses have been as good as ever, hopefully still out for our garden opening next Sunday.
We have a beehive now, but have had a bit of a problem, with the Queen clearing off, thankfully we have been able to get another and are waiting to see if she will be accepted.
