A little taste of country life.
The wild flowers are blooming everywhere, even though there's not much sun for June
I love it now the commune
isn't allowed to spray weed killer along the edge of the lanes.
Even the lizards are hiding
and only come out when the sun appears for a few moments.
The first sighting of our green lizard.
The Jay came to visit but now its back up in the trees.
The Hoopoe bird is still about.
We hear them everyday,
but mostly see them from a distance.
The blue tits are not at the bird table as often now.
as they are busy finding bugs to feed their young.
and with all the rain there's lots of them about.
These blue tits made their nest in a hole in the wall.
Not sure if it was the same pair from last year, I'd like to think it was.
This was the last baby to leave the nest.
This year the finches are in abundance .
We think this male & female Chaffinch were a couple, they were always together.
The Brambling both males.
The green finch
This male Haw-finch comes to the bird table
every evening to feed before going to roost.
He's a big bird, with a big beak.
We are pleased to see the gold finches back, we haven't seen them for a few years.
I love to see walls and gates in the country.
I'll close the gate for now
and look forward to opening it again for you soon.
