Some nice views of birds, the pond finally finished!

August 25, 2014 in sightings

My mum also a keen gardener has been helping out with my garden and clearing a lot of the problem grasses that have taken over the borders and embedded themselves amongst the roses and other plants, it’s tough work in the clay that our garden earth consists of making it very hard for someone with bad carpal tunnel to deal with.  She’s done a lot of it and since then I notice the dunnocks more and the robin has been going about the looser soil, it’s a very nice little bird!

The Pond:
Today was a big day, we finally got to concrete the pond after the debacle with the pond liner from http://www.pondkeeper.co.uk/ and how badly it leaked, even though we took great care when handling etc, I was not impressed.  7 bags of cement and about 400Kg of sand later and we now have a decent looking pond, not as cheap and nasty as I thought it may look being concrete and why I went for the liner in the first place.  The pond will look even better after I get a chance to plant it up with bog plants and surround the tops with rocks and logs it should all look great and offer great hiding for the wildlife.
