The warm weather has really kick started the nest building, with 16 nests now started mainly Blue Tits, but also 6 probably Pied Flycatchers and 1 possible which has 4 bright blue eggs in. 8 of the Blue Tit nests now have eggs as well, well behind last year as regards the date but hopefully now getting on with there main task of reproduction. The House Martins are patching up last years nest around the house with mud from the puddles around. Cuckoo heard most days and Tree creeper and Dipper seen by the river.
We had a nice chap staying in our holiday let with a clever tool on his camera which changed a photo into a painting, hopefully it shows up on the cockbird Rupert's picture.
