Hi Jackie ..
Yes, cold weather... disappointing ..

I expect the birds are confused too... don't know whether to nest or not !

We have an enterprising robin nesting on my greenhouse shelf, this is the second clutch, the first I knew when happily pottering was a beady eye staring at was a chick perched unsteadily on a terracotta pot

Pouring down here, did do a bit in the greenhouse this morning but thats about it, I can sit and see all my garden from my chair and I was horrified to see the ruddy magpies diving into my hedgerow to where the blackbirds nest is, I shot outside and created a fuss below the hedge, okay I know its natures way but I don't have to like it all the time, I suppose they'll be back though...
