    Its the first time I've seen them for a year or so, but they do have a large territory - I was hopeful that they were local when for the first time I saw adult and young a week back on my lawn, but picture did not come out. Maybe, (fingers crossed) one of them is residing. That with the thrushes that appeared two years back and nest in the garden - would be nirvanah [​IMG]

    Thrushes seem to be making a comeback around here.
    Every morning I find a mound of smashed snail shells here or there :D

    Lovely creatures and picture - haven't seen on in this garden, but my previous garden had them. Only problem when they lose their tail :D .

    I think that where mine ones come from Steve.
    I tend to be a bit of an untidy gardener, for these days anyway, but I think it pays off to leave a few undisturbed logs or, dare I say it, rubbish laying around as it attracts all sorts of wildlife. :D
