Cefnllys-climate change???

Whatever happened to the GB summer??? 12 degrees, bitter winds and very little sun, whereas the Med is suffering extremes of heat…40 degrees etc-hey, what IS THAT? Meantime , it’s SCRUFFTIME- for us photographers -look at this Jay , who popped in this morn! Magpie not so bad, and a rather rare glimpse of a butterfly…remember old guys , when we used to have hordes of allsorts in the garden? Commonest was Small Tortoiseshell-where did they go? Climate change? well , I have David Attenborough on my side and he weighs a bit! All we needed was D. Trump just to put the seal on it!!! Hope you youngies are listening, cus it’s your world they are wrecking!

    I remember when I lived in East Anglia , back in the early 70’s , we had a large Buddleia bush in the garden that was covered in butterflies every summer . Was in Wiltshire a few weeks ago – lots of Buddleia in flower but hardly a butterfly to be seen .

    Woe! You are so right Nigel-sometimes I am glad to be old , since the future scares the pants off!!!

    Like the Jay photo Kev, the ‘haircut’ looks similar to a few of the blue tits round our way, perhaps it’s the all new trendy look. As for the butterflies, have to agree, we get excited seeing one in the garden they so few in number. Even in the short time we have been here we have noticed a significant drop off in numbers
