Suffolk coaching today, and some glorious hail and thunder to come with it. when the shiny yellow thing did wake up, around 15 Swallows were dotted all over the place, but no House Martins, even though some present. Lots of the commoner raptors were seen in the local village, including Kestrels and Sparrowhawks. Goshawks have now sort have come to the end of their display time, so there will not be many strays around our area.
Saturday was another Golfing day, and produced Swallows, but a bit more numerous, and the local Chiffchaff, Treecreeper and Goldcrest. A general week at school, not much to provide, but a few Stock Dove have been seen in the woodland areas, accompanied by the yaffling Green Woodpeckers.
Most days when I come home from school, one of the local Stock Doves pokes itself up in the garden, and on the rare occasion the pair are seen together. We now have 3 eggs in our local Blue Tit Nest Box, and will be keeping a close eye with our camera linked to the TV.
TOTAL OF BIRDS FOR 2012 = 136
