|Keeping me under surveillance!|
Apart from this overnight newcomer there was little else apart from two pairs of Skylarks singing and repeatedly dropping onto one of the posts...
|With crest raised.|
The Cuckoo has been 'cuckooing' for hours on end and continues to feed on the caterpillars of the Brown Tailed Moth which have become a real menace. Having stripped all the foliage off all the blackberry bushes they have moved into the gardens and are now exploring anything and everything, even crawling up the walls, window panes and sometimes coming indoors!
We need a lot more Cuckoos to control these beasts!
This evening in quite a stiff breeze all three Tern species were patrolling the main inlet to the harbour...
|Common Tern with fish.|
|The smallest and rarest...the Little Tern|
|The largest and most plentiful....the Sandwich Tern.|
...and that's it for this week.
