As normal, most of the birds go about their daily lives with little fuss. The one guaranteed exception being the Starlings who spend as much time arguing as they do eating.

Compo, the scruffy looking Blackbird, still visits several time a day always collecting as much food as his beak will hold. His feathers still stick out in all directions but he seems to cope perfectly well.
The Magpies also visit several time a day. The juveniles are now feeding themselves. As usual they are very wary and this is often the view one sees of them.
During one of the short sunny intervals I managed to spot a couple of Blue-tailed Damselflies at the garden pond. This time one obligingly settled on a lily pad which gave me time to photo it. The only other insect life about was a hoverfly resting in the sunlight.
