Ian McDonald’s Observations

11 April 2020

Watching wildlife in the garden, as travelling to the Moors is banned, I noticed a blue tit kept flying to apple mint and pulling pieces of leaf off. I wonder if it was using the soft leaves for the nest (a box on my neighbours wall) or using the strong smell of mint as an insect repellent? Ian.
