The patches lasted well through the winter with their mix of architectural plants such as teazel
Over the autumn and winter I have seen roe deer, muntjac, stoats, numerous pheasants and a partridge using the grass 'pathways' between these patches, bringing them very close to the house. We now have a duck who has fallen in love with some herb bushes (she nested in some mint by the front door last year) and the pied wagtails are back. I regularly see a fox, less welcome visitors are a rat (but I hope an owl will catch him) and of course grey squirrels which are a menace to birds.
