Ladybirds and woodpeckers

At last the sun has come out and me and Alfie can run about outside in the garden! And all sorts of things are happening now - Leigh has been down planting garlic and shallots in the raised beds and she found ladybirds all over the gate and fence.

This is a picture of 2 of them. And there have been so many birds coming to the garden - chaffinches, thrushes, blackbirds, blue tits, great tits, starlings - loads of sparrows and goldfinches, greenfinches dunnocks, wrens collared doves, wood pigeons AND  a female woodpecker that has been at the peanut feeder - no wonder Leigh has to keep filling up the feeders - even though there are 6 !
