Bright and early yesterday morning Alfie and I arrived at my newly selected patch and got started. The area I've chosen is a square of quiet country lanes amongst farmland, both arable and horsey. There's also an adjacent area of woodland with a fishing pond which I only found today and have decided to include in my patch to give us more variety.
First visit sightings are quite modest but I am quite rusty!
