Seems I was missing the party while I toiled in the back garden, preparing the soil for a new wildlife hedge. Obviously a bit of a spectacle too as small birds twittered in the trees and bushes nearby. Never have my camera when the goldcrests arrive along with the long-tailed tits, coaltits, dunnocks and robins. Needing a rest, I walked down to the sun-drenched front garden to find over 20 butterflies flitting about, almost posing for the camera. Well don’t miss an opportunity when it is offered….
