Nothing at all to report from my patch today, it was hot and sticky as I walked into work, and very little was seen, apart from the SWALLOWS at the leaking water trough again.
I walked home from work and it was even hotter and stickier! The only living things seen were a flock of panting ROOKS at Migrant Alley!
I got home, and tried to cool off indoors with a long ice cold drink, whilst waiting for it to cool down outside. I finally went out at 16:30hrs, and it was still baking under the sun, I got as far as a walk around the Tree Nursery, before having to find a shady place to sit and skywatch, which produced a single BLACK HEADED GULL. A few Butterflies flitted by, Meadow Browns mostly, but Small Tortoiseshell, Common Blue, and both Small and Large Skipper were seen, but i was no way chasing them about for a photograph in the heat :-)
I may take a walk out this evening, if it cools down ! i'll report back tomorrow.
I managed a photo of this Hedgehog that visits my garden, it's old ''one eye'.
I also saw this Juv. HOUSE SPARROW - interesting because of it's beak deformity.
