Birds all aflutter
ILOVE to read my AG magazine and when there are things about ponds, even better. We have a pond 8ft x 5ft for koi fish and a waterfall which is a bathing place for lots of birds: blackbirds, sparrows, blue tits and chaffinches. It’s great to watch them and see them drinking from the waterfall. When you are with them, you forget all the bad things in the world, don’t you?
We also have a smaller pond for frogs, toads and tadpoles but I have only seen one frog this year, which is a shame.
We really love our ponds as they bring life to our garden. We have feeders and buy bird seed and mealworms to keep our wildlife happy. A robin visits which is very tame and comes right up to us. I guess he has faith in us feeding him. Victor Cox, Cheltenham, Glos
Wendy says I agree, bird watching is addictive! It’s wonderful to hear your garden is popular with all kinds of birds and I hope the frogs return next year.
Victor’s garden is a wildlife haven with ponds for drinking and bathing, and feeders ready for winter
