Drinking coffee

greenfinchWhilst drinking a cup of coffee by the snug area at the Go Local Fields, Ian the grower spotted a dragonfly whizzing along close by. As it was in the shade he couldn’t say what colour it was though. A green finch also sat and watched the cup of coffee. Possibly thirsty.

Obviously there is a lack of puddles and other easy water sources for wild life. So if you can leave a shallow bowl of water out in a secluded but open corner of your garden for hedgehogs, birds, bees, other wild life this will be a kind act. But remember to change it every couple of days so that it doesn’t become a midge breeding area and top it up if required.
