This is a lovely time of year for Birdsong, they are so busy. Nest building and trying chat up a mate ..
9 30pm walking my Lucy (Lurcher) The sound of the birds was spell bounding. Swallows were busy high in the sky and even came close to Lucy as they sped by her head. Not entirely sure what that meant.
The Woodpecker came by and fed on my peanuts , always a pleasure to see them. The pretty little Goldfinch has hung about for while longer than usual, I think maybe they settled to build a nest here . With so many Trees all thick and green there’s plenty to choose from. Oh that’s wonderful !
A cheeky large breed Duck has popped over from next doors Pond. I think he is three times bigger than the Mallards on the Lake . Must be short of females I since have discovered. So invited himself over , has been here for 4 weeks now. Two years ago a family of Mallards produced a pair had more white than the normal Ducklings. These two survived and seem to be a bit larger and tougher. MMM me thinks I know now who the father is. Oh and most of the rest of the family did . Often see him sitting close to two Drakes as if he knew they were his off Springs. Ha !
Taking a break see upload the pictures shortly ..Catch you Later have a lovely Day.
