Feeling Autumnal ?

Well—hasnt been feeling very summery at all recently. Yesterday 12 house martins gathering on phone line and not much sign of swifts about in evening. A little bit of a robin song too this morning. But some good bird success in our garden swallows, house martins, swifts all nested. As did spotted flycatchers, real treat the other evening when five were doing hunting flights from an oak tree, truly magical. Also grey wagtail, greenfinches (although sadly cat got some of young), blackbirds and wood pigeons. And no doubt the other commoner garden bird species. So all in all good. Reading excellent book Say goodbye to the cuckoo` kindly loaned to me by Mr Don Slimming-- I highly recommend it
