The weather has been so lovely this week – and I’ve been able to make the most of it. I’ve gone for walks, I’ve sat in the garden reading and writing, I’ve had breakfast and dinner sitting outside. I sat outside a pub with a friend enjoying the conversation and a decent pint of beer. A Hobby had scattered the Swallows a few minutes earlier.
I’ve seen a couple of late Swifts over the garden and enjoyed the chirrupping of House Martins overhead. I recorded my second-ever Chiffchaff for the garden which I heard calling and then heard singing next door.
There are lots of berries in the hedgerows, and I filled another 2-litre container with them yesterday.
There are occasional Speckled Woods, Peacocks and whites still in the garden.
The leaves on a few trees are already turning brown.
