Thursday 6 June

Not Shustoke Reservoir this time but on Tuesday evening Joy and I did something we don’t often do! We sat in the garden and enjoyed it, rather than work in it. I was on my second coffee when with my naked eye I picked up a bird flitting around in the big oak tree. My first instinct was that it was Spotted Flycatcher so I rushed inside to fetch my binoculars, loh and behold it wasn’t one but two. They were also carrying nesting material. Those of you who read the blog might remember that last year in June I found a dead Spotted Flycatcher in the garden, that got me thinking at the time “have I missed them”.

Well it might well be that I have. Anyway I am highly chuffed.
