Firstly a quick note to say a big thank you to all my followers public and private on both of my blogs and of course Twitter where we are starting to build a little momentum at last. A particular thank you goes out to those of you who have sent in comments and questions it is this interaction that I particularly enjoy! I do hope that you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to wildlife gardening in 2014!?
2013 really has been a pivotal year in Higgy's Garden Project with many new species of invertebrate discovered and recorded and a few changes made along the way. Probably the biggest highlight for me personally was the approach by the BBC that resulted in my appearance on BBC Springwatch and the chance to chat about butterflies and moths to millions of viewers which was a complete thrill.
I think my thought for this post is to show some of my 2013 highlights and of course unveil the plans for a big project for 2014, which I hope should be of interest to everyone.
As you will all be aware 2013 started off cold and wet and the late Spring seen very little happening in the garden except some mild panicking that we may not have anything for the BBC to film when they arrived in June! The cold Spring meant that we had very few wild flower plugs big enough to plant out and the area looked a bit barren! In a desperate plea to get the wild flower area looking good for filming I ordered in some plugs but they failed to turn up in time!
