Only some of the great number whose company we enjoyed as they swooped over, called outside our windows or ignored our presence! (I started a card with all of them, but it was a bitter business – as always I started off at a ridiculously tiny scale, and every day a new species would flutter past me and I’d have to add to their number.)
Can you recognise them all (or any)? That nest is the home of some young house martins in one of our cottage’s windows – you’ll find their mum flying towards the Goldfinch who is hovering near the top.That’s a Blackcap about to perch on Flink’s head, a Willow warbler next to a Chaffinch, and a Jackdaw in the air. That’s all I’ll say.
