    Not as many of these have arrived on our shores as expected but five have been seen in Dorset and here is one. Distant but still a stunning bird.

    Blackbirds and cats

    Also prickly hedging type plants like Berberis and Pyracantha, somewhere the birds can hide and the cats will be deterred from.

    This sounds good! The bees I have used to go into holes in the brickwork on the side of my house, so thought the tubes would be similar. I can’t wait to see if I get any cocoons!
