We’ve lived in our house for 25 years and I’ve always kept an eye on what wildlife we have had in the garden during that time. Over the years I’ve had a lot of different birds either fly over or land in the garden. A couple of years after we moved in during cold winter I watched 5 species of thrush feeding at the same time on my windfall apples. Five years ago on Christmas Day I finally connected with Waxwing, although this was observed ‘from’ the garden. I remember one Spring we had a pair of amorous & noisy foxes making out on the front lawn. they also ate the tongue out of a pair of Jeanette’s walking boots.
More recently I have tried to photograph as much as I can of my garden wildlife, especially since I bought the EF 100 f2.8L IS Macro lens. This lens has completely opened my eyes to the invertebrates, plants, amphibians etc that live in or around Terrazzo Galvini.
