Came across these two sheltering in the Rupert Beer garden from the pouring rain and high winds of two nights ago! They were huddled quite close, and unlike the pigeon that crashed down my chimney a few years ago, they weren't startled by the flash.
Good news. After turning over the idea in my mind for a while, I finally decided to formally propose my idea of creating a wildflower meadow on our huge site has been accepted. Me and an enthusiastic gardener are going to do a survey and cost it out next week, and then look into getting some seeds and looking for volunteer labour.
It may not work, but we'll see. I'm feeling quite pleased this idea took the fancy of the powers that be!
