The Year 2003 diaries


The 2003 Garden Diary

The third year of my diary of wild happenings in the garden.

 The 2003 Pond Diary

The continuing story of life among the pond weeds - a notebook about the frogs, newts and other pond inhabitants.

 The 2003 Blue Tit / Bumble Bee Box Diary

There were daily visits by the Blue Tits from Christmas onwards, and March started with a few deliveries of straw. The end of March saw the start of serious nest building which continued until mid-April when, unfortunately, the nest was abandoned by the Blue Tits and taken over by a Bumble Bee.

I had hopes that we could follow the development of the bee's nest, but it too abandoned the box on 2 May, perhaps as a result of a spider web across the entrance.
