Feathered Friends

These little visitors have certainly helped brighten up some cold, miserable days of late.  Am I right in thinking we have a Greenfinch? Goldfinches? and Sparrow?

These photos were taken with GFAA’s long-lensed camera – the Nikon Coolpix P900.  Remember, any GFAA member can borrow it to take photos for the website. Details below.

Magic Moments and Butterflies

One of the joys of being on site at this time of year is catching sight of these visitors.

Sedum seems to attract them in huge numbers.  I counted a dozen on this plant at different points in the day.

Ah well, their days are numbered down to precious few I guess, but they certainly add more than a little magic while they are with us.

I’ll have Sedum to split for the coming season: if you’d like one let me know.  You will have to find your own butterflies, however: these are hefted to my plot – I hope!

New beginnings and new enthusiasts

It’s that time of year when plots begin to change hands.  All around the site there are signs of new plotters bringing extra energy to their newly acquired plots.  This wee detail on one caught my eye today.

It’s a reminder that identifying your plot (which is a Council requirement) can be very attractive and effective without being expensive.

Stunning!

Our wild flower area has been simply stunning for weeks now.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the hard work to get it re-established this year and especially Michael who kept faith with the original idea of a wild flower garden after the difficulties of our first efforts.

How lucky are we?

The site was looking great in the sunshine this afternoon after lots of hard work to get it ready for our upcoming IYN assessment.  The new Octagon was a real picture.

This cheeky chappie also seemed pleased to be on site and was clearly appreciative of Gordon Mitchell’s efforts on the bird feeding front.

An eye for detail ….
