Another scorcher, reading in the garden this morning, Aldi this afternoon.
From the garden - A Buzzard over Roper Lane this morning and a Green Woodpecker called loudly this evening.
Early evening and the heat was a bit less and a light breeze came along so I had a walk to my new Taylor Lane Copse 'watch point'.
Still got a sweat on by the time I got up there.
Kids and adults were having a party in their garden when I got there.
I hung around for 30 mins or so and no sausage rolls were hurled at me so I must have been quite incognito in my dapper light coloured flannels.
A 'bit' of movement in the conifers and 'poor' strawberry bushes today.
Possible F. Blackcap (said hello/goodbye).
7 or so Mistle Thrush.
Kestrel, 3 Pheasants.
Willow Warbler, Whitethroat.
A Raven called once - not seen.
2 Buzzard seen from Bradshaw Lane - 1 on a pylon, 1 on a post nearby.
A Buzzard constantly calling could be a 3rd bird.
Relaxing in the garden now, late evening.
Plonked my, full glass of red vino callapso plonk ,on a table outside.
A wasp decided to have a swim in it - got it out with a spoon.
It was a new species a B**** Wasp and It was still moving when I oinked it out with a spoon.
Now do I drink the wine or throw it away? - I threw it away - yep, I know.
If it had been my 3rd glass I would have drunk it and the wasp.
