Welcome Mr Toad

I spotted this toad near my manure pile this week.





It would be great to build up a record of the wildlife that we see on our site.  If you spot something interesting, please let Norman know.  Better still, if you can catch a photo or some video please pass it onto him at gfaawebhelper [at]


Elephant Hawk-Moth – It’s a stunner!



Thanks to David for pointing out this beautiful Elephant Hawk-Moth visiting on his plot recently.   What a stunner! Otherwise known as Deilephila Elpenor (that’s easy for you to say!)

Read more on Wikipedia.

We are keen to build up photos and information about all the wildlife our site supports.  If you have any photos or information about sightings please send them on to me or Norman.


The gang’s all here

Today’s volunteer session was hard work in the heat, but great fun.  Thanks to Gill for coming by to lend her support and apologies to Anne for missing her photograph – she was moving too fast to get her in frame!

Celebrating with the Birthday Boy

Gordon, our longest-serving volunteer, managed to let it slip that today was his birthday, so we managed to arrange a wee celebration lunch for him.

A couple of questions:

How come after a morning gardening, Gordon manages to look like a visiting dignitary?

Is he lying about his age?  He doesn’t look anything like 59!

For sure, it was great to have him with us on this special day and we wish him all the best for many happy returns.
