When the single Tree Sparrow appeared during the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch I was able to take this piece of video:
During the week I spotted this pair of Collared Doves preening each other - won't be long before they are breeding again.
Finally some short clips of occasions when both Great Tits are in the nest box. These visits occur most days and are very brief.
It ended up a bit on the breezy side last night. It was a good job I checked some of my older fence panels as one was bending alarmingly in the strong gusts and threatening to disintegrate at any time. Fortunately I was able to brace it against the wind and thankfully it is still there this morning though it needs some bodging (repair). Our winds didn't compare with those experienced in parts of Australia recently but still enough to bring some branches down in the village.
The maximum gusts in mph as recorded by my weather centre over the past 24 hours.
It was a pleasant surprise when I saw that the temperature was a very respectable 11C at 7 a.m.. Long may it stay that way.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.
