The Brook

Like I've mentioned before, we live next to a brook.
Here's a few pictures just to give you an idea. These where all taken behind our house in February.

A New Hope

Earlier in the year my daughter sat down and took part in the RSPB garden bird survey. The idea was to sit for an hour an see what birds visited in that time.

We had a grand total of zero ! not good at all.

So we decided to make an effort and turn the garden into a more wild life friendly place.

It seemed only natural to want to add a pond even though we live next door to small brook.

So this hopefully will be the story of our little pond and other things.

I dug the pond with help from my youngest two children.
It varies in depth from 18" to a very shallow 2"

We added a log pile for a amphibian/insect refuge

Here's the result, not quite finished but getting there.
