I'm not the only one whose noticed a proliferation of butterflies this year.I guess it must be the hot weather this year, but that is just a guess. Are there any butterfly experts out there. Are there any photies?
Aye, little feckers. Definitely more of them than in recent years - hostas and lupins were decimated.Millions of snails too - and more slugs than normal
I get a lot of blackbirds nesting in beach hedges. The magpies hunt them down though, pricks.Another thing you never see Blackbirds now but plenty of Magpies.Should have called this post nature watch.
Apparently they're not scared off by the smell of pishPlenty foxes out in the wilds of West Lothian.
One came sauntering past me as I was loading up my car with vino tinto in the Morrison's car park in Livi one evening a couple of weeks ago.
I stamped my foot and yelled at it - bugger didn't bat an eyelid. Just gave me a sort of puzzled 'wtf?' look and carried on and disappeared through a hole in the fence.
I was a bit relieved to be honest, thought he was going to confiscate my wine. I'd have put up a fight, but I think he had me beat.
Not sure about that, Moaty.Another thing you never see Blackbirds now but plenty of Magpies.Should have called this post nature watch.
