The best of the days weather was had this morning, while I was working! As soon as I got home, the first of a rash of showers started to fall, so I cancelled my walk today. The only birds of note were a HOBBY seen chasing the SWALLOWS over Migrant alley as I walked to work, and a KESTREL seen around the Greenhouses as i walked back.
I spent the afternoon cleaning out all my birdfeeders. The birds are eating nearly 2kg of sunflower hearts a day! Thats nearly £100 a month! I watched them all feeding later in the day, and estimated that there were 50-60 birds in the garden - who says they dont need feeding in summer?
Hopefully normal ''patchwatching'' will resume tomorrow!
