Wednesday 23rd July

The weather just gets better every day, as good a summer over here this year, as far as I can remember. Yesterday, I was speaking to a friend who lives up behind Bridgend and he was telling me that in one the Swallows nests where he lives that they reared a brood of 5 youngsters. The other morning, a wee while ago while listening to his radio, the topic of conversation was the call of a female Cuckoo, lo and behold later that morning he heard one calling away... Yesterday, in the garden, I saw a pr of Pheasants out with a brood of 5 youngsters, all of which were just a few days old by the size of them. The other regular family with only the one chick, well, it is growing rapidly and has learned where the food is on the bird table as well as the dish with the water too...
