Sunday Garden Bird update
Last Thursday, the House Martins returned to the one of our 3 House Martin nests. I hope the other two pairs make it back too. Also it was very encouraging to see a female Blackbird on a nest in a bush by the garage door. Several Swallows, 8 flew south last Thursday too. Sadly for some reason, the nest was abandoned by Saturday. Today, Sunday the adult Starlings were feeding two newly fledged youngsters on next door's roof. Also a Feral Pigeon, a very clean looking Rock Dove settled on s roof two door's down. The Willow Warbler continues to sing everyday from Fallowfields and was joined yesterday by a Chiff- Chaff and today by the first singing Whitethroat of the year (heard from the garden).
