Growing up, and even now I love visiting my Nan & Gramps house, as they live in a Bungalow on quite a large plot of land and get LOADS of wildlife (birds, squirrels, hedgehogs, foxes etc etc). Now - we pretty much have the same - who knew I was such a lover of bird watching (man it is SUCH a time waster)
When we first started looking for houses in Cornwall - we looked mostly in town. We (read I) fell in love with a lovely old 3 storey town house, but it wasn't to be. All of these houses had one thing in common - NO GARDEN to speak of. We initially didn't think much of this as you had a sea view.... I mean a sea view - what more could you want???
Well.... now we have moved into the house we are in (slightly aware from town and the seafront - but we do have what estate agents call "a sea glimpse") WOW how important is the garden??? Er VERY! We love our garden. We are lucky enough to be only Semi-attached (end of terrace) and also on a corner of the road so our garden just happens to be one of the biggest!
Spotted in the garden today:
- Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Long Tail Tit (so so cute)
- Blackbirds (Mr & Mrs)
- Magpie, Jackdaws, Rooks
- Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch
- Black Cap
- House Sparrow (Mr & Mrs)
- Dunnock, Wren
- Pied Wagtail
- Collared Doves
- Herring Gulls
Wow - that is quite a list!!! Here are a few photo's (varying quality as they are quick little things)
