Small garden wildlife

I saw a fabulous feature on Countryfile last night about a woman who has camera traps set up in her garden. She had captured footage of all sorts of wildlife from kingfishers to harvest mice. It was an impressive garden and a very impressive (and probably expensive) technical set up.  I was totally jealous of both as I stood in my spare bedroom looking out of the window down onto my own small garden wondering how I could ever get anywhere near the sort of film and photographs shown on the programme.

I can never hope to compete. Much as I often dream of a much larger garden we are happy in the home we have had for over 30 years and so I have to work with what I've got!  I hope therefore this blog will also serve as a diary of the wildlife seen on my patch and I hope it will in time be proof that you don't need lots of land or lots of money to attract, help and watch wildlife.
