UNLESS they've been attracted to a nestbox, Blue Tits are more regular in our garden in the winter. Yesterday morning there was one pecking at the seedheads of an Opium Poppy in the back garden and today it's back there again.
It's time to start re-stocking the bird table.
Rain and warmth have brought out a lot of fungi, the most conspicuous of which is the Fly Agaric. Something, presumably a slug, has eaten away part of the stem.Besides making you feel ill, this fungus has long been known for its hallucinogenic qualities. Do slugs suffer from hallucinations. And if they did how could we tell?
