I’m going to try for a willow warbler later. Think I heard one yesterday but long way from certain. Still no hirundines

Looked out the window and thought "WTAF is that flying towards me?" It was round and white and heading right at the window...

Turned out to be a jackdaw with a beak full of Ellie-pony fluff heading for the chimney pot.

I'm not sure what I thought it was but I had a bit of a moment.

Reed bunting today. Although they're not summer visitors, I certainly notice them a lot more in spring and summer, and I almost think of them as spring arrivals. This one was my first of the year.

We have a 3 chamber sparrow box, but with no prospect of house sparrows using it, as they simply do not visit our garden at all, despite being numerous 3-400 metres away. Fortunately it doesn't go to waste and one of the chambers is this year again being used by great tits.

Blackcap singing beautifully today and I thought an influx of chiffs. My wife said, unprompted, ‘I’m not bothered about actually seeing the warblers. Hearing them is just great’ :-)

I heard a peregrine falcon calling from the church spire on Monday evening :-)

More swallows, this time closer to home, also saw my first housemartin.

Also have seen where the little Egrets are nesting, is it called a heronry? What is interesting is that it is the same copse where most of the crows seem to be nesting. Will they happily coexist, or is it likely to get messy?

Got something to say?
