Red Dead Nettle
The pond was busy too. Amongst the carpet of frogspawn, a lone male kept calling. The newts are still in the water and I also saw a pair of mating water boatmen (boatpeople?).
Calling male frog
A dried thistle flowehead
The prepared bed for the "bake your lawn" wheat
The fresh leaves of hazel
A centipede we found on the leaf litter
The finishing touches after planting the wheat, a nice willow fence
A duck egg, maybe predated by a fox?
A wonderful afternoon in the wildlife garden enjoyed by everybody!
