This is the carefully placed archway, leading to a "woodland Walk" in Pam's fabulously designed garden. This picture was taken during the 2011 St Margaret's Garden Safari on July 2nd
This weekend Storm Katie took a go at modifying it.
This rather fine male Brambling has been decorating the garden for the last two days. Like Chaffinches Bramblings get their summer plumage by the wear on their feathers.
The soft ends erode to reveal the beautiful breeding plumage.
The male Siskin on the peanuts was interesting in that for a while the only bird using peanuts in my garden has been Great Spotted Woodpeckers.
Everything else sticks to Sunflower seeds or fatballs. This one Siskin remained faithful to the nuts while
his buddies ate the seeds.
