With the weather warming up and the newly hatched arrivals the garden is buzzing with activity. Goldfinches are ignoring the Nyjer seed and taking dried mealworms/Sunflower seeds instead.

Robin and Blackbirds are also eating meal worms and any insects I disturb in the Garden.
Palmate Newt has made a home in the Growbag Try so this is now out of action.

The 2 Badgers are eating kitchen scraps and peanuts, both seem happy and healthy.
