Looked out the front window and there was a blackbird with a beak full of dried grass from under the privet hedge.
Smiling, went out the back door to find the moss off the flat roof conservatory had been thrown over the edge and littered the path and step with lumps. Thanks to the birds (hedge sparrows) gathering moss for their nests. Great.
Not smiling any more. Went to the Poly tunnel to check on the watering of the seed trays put out there to harden off to find mice had nipped off 7 of the broad bean shoots and dug up and eaten the seeds.
There was a lot of muttering about wild life as the husband returned the seed trays to the safety of the greenhouse benches and swept the moss off the back door mat.
