The Focus Of My Attention

This is how my garden looks after tidying!

The focus of my attention at the minute is this very normal looking bush.

We usually have a blackbird nesting in the garden. But now we've cut the garden back, although there's still a lot of mess and space for wildlife, the tree they usually use isn't quite as full. 

Yesterday I saw the male blackbird on the fence with worms in his beak, so I watched. I had an idea where the nest was a I'd seen the female carrying bits and bobs back a little while ago. They've built a nest in a smallish bush on the other side of the garden. I am on high alert, five cats use our garden as a thoroughfare and they pass right by the bush, one was having a little sniff around this morning, so I am right there as soon as I see a cat. Luckily for me the buns dislike the cats so let me know about it as soon as one appears. 

It's a stressful time, but I do enjoy it. 


  1. Nest guard duty - eh! Is the water pistol handy or do you just rush out making a loud noise?

    1. Aha, sounds like the question of an expert! I am very much a "run out clapping" person. I'd feel guilty if I hit the cat with water in case it froze or something.

      I think too much about animals.
