Wildlife Spotting while Shopping.


It has been a lovely bright, warm weekend in the NW of England! Summer has indeed stayed a little longer than usual 😀

On Saturday Mum, David and I headed for my favourite garden centre, Lady Green, in Ince Blundell. We still needed to buy wildlife friendly plants for the other side of the garden.

We spent over £40 but I got a lovely pink Michaelmas Daisy and a Sedum which was covered with huge Bees and butterflies!

I counted at least five different species of butterfly while we strolled amongst the plants. Those spotted were:

  1. Red Admiral
  2. Speckled Wood
  3. Small White
  4. Small Tortoiseshell
  5. Comma

Back home, amongst the mass of Goldfinches, Starlings and Pigeons, a new guest has been spotted at the bird feeders, a Robin to accompany the recently visiting Blue Tit who has been very vocal! The Robin seems timid and probably the mass of Goldfinches may chase him away. I will keep you updated.
