Feed the birds…
All this extra time we’re spending in our gardens seems to have inspired a new squad of twitchers – us included. There is something so therapeutic about watching birds as they busy about their day. And don’t get us started on the singing. Such joy! To fuel our new obsession we spent quite a long time searching for the perfect bird feeder to attract more feathered friends. This one (pictured) came out on top.
And if you’d like more info and inspiration, take a look at the RSPB’s guide to birdwatching.
As we write, gardens and properties with grounds are gradually beginning to open their gates for outdoor visitors. So let’s be optimistic and hope that by mid-Summer we will once again be able to take our pick from all the wonderful landscaped spaces across the UK. Among the dog-friendly ones our favourites include:
Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens near Weymouth in Dorset
Cholmondeley Castle Gardens in Cheshire
And Waddesdon House and Gardens in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Just make sure you check current opening information before you turn up!
