Rain stops play....for me at least

Rain all day, 15°, light W.

A thoroughly wet day but we did need some rain.

Needless to say I did not get out to play today, however a lot of activity in the meadow behind the garden with numerous visits by Black-headed Gulls that were passing through then invariably being chased off by the resident pair of Carrion Crows who are now teaching junior how to look for food and who to tolerate on their territory.

A Green Woodpecker, various Blackbird, a Song Thrush and Wood Pigeons.

Moorhen, Mallards, Stock Doves, Collared Doves, Great-spotted WoodpeckerRobin, Dunnock and Wren in the garden and the usual Blue and Great Tits on the feeders along with Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Goldfinch and a couple of House Sparrow.

  1. Sparrowhawk fledglings next to the school on saturday, but no sign of Spotted Flycatchers near the pub (but only checked from the path).
