In between the Old and New Bristol Roads in Worle there is a narrow wooded area that is a haven for wildlife. On either side there is a ditch and in the ditch nearest Old Bristol Road a lot of frogspawn was observed on 26th March. On 20th April one half of the ditch was teeming with tadpoles but unfortunately they are competing with a lot of litter. The other half of the ditch has become littered and too overgrown to sustain the tadpoles. This shows the need for the ditch to be properly managed.

We are very lucky to have Deer regularly visit us in our garden. We have many types of fruit tree's  and lots of natural plants and shrubs. This gives the Deer plenty of food throughout the year. Which encourages them to visit us time and time again. We never grow tired of seeing them and most years we get to see new baby deer in the spring.

The peanut pieces are really meant for the blue tits in my garden here in Worle but the local crow has other ideas! It repeatedly removes the feeder from the hook and drops it on the ground to empty out the food. The other day it removed the feeder and flew off with it over two fences to the property next door before dispatching the contents on to the neighbour's path!
