This evening Louise was sat out in the garden while I was putting Oliver to bed, She heard a sound and looked up to see what it was and over by the swing was a Hedgehog eating some nuts the Squirrels had dropped, She manage to get some video of it too. This is the first time we have seen a Hedgehog in our garden.
Beetle (Lagria hirta)
Saw this bug eating a Thistle leaf in our garden today, not sure what type it is till I do a search.

A quick clip of a Squirrel and a Jay feeding from the sieve feeder.
We put up a sieve and filled it with peanuts the try and encourage the Squirrels to feed from that instead if the bird feeders, one of which they have nearly bitten in half. this morning I looked out of the window and saw one of them feeding from the new feeder, then i noticed another one was still on the sunflower feeder, looks like we will have to put up another one with sunflower seeds in.
Way back in 2009 I filmed a snail walking/slithering under the surface of our pond. I assume this must be a water snail.

Found this little bug in our nettle patch near the pond this morning, Very accommodating it was too while I took it's photo.
I have no Idea what type of bug it is til I do a bit of searching. Till then it's known as a Nettle Bug. :-)
