Good Afternoon, I missed a big event in our garden this morning as it was a cold and wet morning I walked round for the daily paper as I like walking in the rain. While I was out a Sparrowhawk came and landed on our fence at the bottom of the garden. Stuart was in the kitchen taking his medication and saw all this happening. He said it came up from behind the fence sat for about a minute had a good look round and was off at the blink of an eye and I missed it. Teach me to be nice and go for a paper. We had a Tawny Owl last year and we both missed that just got report from next door. I think our little birds on the table had better watch out with a Sparrowhawk about. We have a very big nasty Robin this year too that will not let any of the birds feed they have to wait till he goes elsewhere before they can feed.
Was reading the last report from Loch Garten this morning and the Ospreys have been very good this year they raised 3 chicks which is excellent well above the norm. They left for there winter holidays on 4th September so they will now hopefully be sunning themselves in Africa. It will be 3 years before these chicks will return to breed so we wish them well. That's it for just now all is very quiet up here just now but we did see a lovely Kingfisher the other week just to keep us interested.
Total for the year is now 181.
Bye for now,
