A while back, Mrs RC made a nest box for a pair of doves that were extremely bad at nest building.
The box worked, the doves moved in and here are the babies they had!
The adults have now rebuilt the nest and seem intent on having more babies before the summer ends...
When we found this in the garden I thought it was some sort of snake at first. Turns out to be the caterpillar of a Giant Hawk Moth.
Having looked it up we decided that my mum has the ideal plants in her garden both for the caterpillar and the moth when it hatches. We wish him well!
Bees and butterflies also seem to like our garden.
On my ride to work this morning I passed this. The road is supposed to be closed for repairs, but at least one vehicle came this way last night.
There are a lot of people who just will not get rid of their junk properly and just dump it. Some call them animals, but I don't think that this term is at all appropriate, do you?
