I visited the garden centre and bought some plants for the pond and also some water snails to help keep the pond clean. Spotted a couple of newts again today and think they were two different species but not sure what. Maybe a common and a palmate.
Saw a couple of butterflies again, small white and holly blue. A pair of robins were together on the patio and one was feeding the other. This is part of the mating ritual where the male feeds the female to help build her body weight up so she can produce the eggs.
Not noticed any activity in the bird boxes for a few days but haven't really spent much time watching them. Hope they are still occupied.
