On the left, picture taken yesterday after lots of noise from the long grass left to grow around the garden, showing 2 males and 1 female grasshopper. We hear them everyday but don’t usually manage to spot them. There was another female a little way up and unfortunately, not long after this pic was taken, a magpie flew in and snapped one of them up! Nature in action.
On the right, a small spider I noticed last week, in the process of burrowing down into the soil, complete with egg sac (I haven’t a clue what spider it is, quite small though).
Just a reminder, my garden is just a normal suburban one, only 3 years old (new build) and built on a brownfield site. Anyone can encourage, support and enjoy the wildlife in the smallest of spaces and they sure need our help 🙂
Have a good day!
