Still raining!

Sunny spells, showers (some thundery), 18º, light W.

A sunny morning and a showery afternoon with thunderstorms and heavy rain early evening. Had a phone call from Wantage to say that there was a hailstorm going on (size of peas).

Went to have a look at 1066, a few Swallows feeding and 2 Sand Martins, 6 Tufted Ducklings, a Little Grebe and a Grey Heron.

Got to Lollingdon Hill and the rain started so had to give it a miss.

Another battle with the Squirrel today, it woke me up at 05:30 swinging on the feeders and clattering them together, have taken some new counter measures, 2 inverted plastic flower pots. let’s see if I have him this time!

The 2 Stock Doves still feeding regularly in the garden, after a thunderstorm this evening there was a flurry of activity in the garden, Blue Tits, Great Tits and a Robin on the feeders and 8 Wood Pigeon, 2 Stock Doves and 2 Grey Squirrels (not on the feeders).

The Hedgehogs were out in the garden early tonight!

Found a moth in the garden sheltering from a recent rain shower, it’s a Light Emerald (Cheers Rog and Gnome).
