In the Garden

Sunny, 25°, very light SSW.

A sunny and warm day and just pottering about in the garden. The hottest day this year and apparently the hottest April day since 1949!

A fair bit of activity over, above and in the garden today. The Rookery next to the garden have young in the nests so every time a Red Kite, Buzzard or Sparrowhawk etc passes anywhere near several Rook launch into the air to harry the bird of prey until they are at a safe distance.

At least 1 Swallow hawking over the garden thru the day and a Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat and Willow Warbler heard/seen in the meadow.

Other birds of note, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Treecreeper and 2 Nuthatch visiting.

Butterflies: Brimstone, Orange Tip and Small Tortoiseshell.
