The daisies and cornflowers have now been joined by poppies. Both the cornflowers and poppies have been very popular with the bumblebees. The insect population is beginning to develop and this is the first native greenshield bug thats been seen in the garden. Bird visitor numbers have steadily increased and they seem to enjoy the hazel coppice near the feeders. The regular list of visitors now includes: bullfinches, goldfinches, greenfinches, sparrows, robins, blackbirds and great tits.
