Summer is such an amazing time, we have plenty of fledgling birds at the moment, it’s just a shame the weather has been rather dull recently, so rather poor photos:
First we have the Great Tits, this little baby was shouting at its parent early Friday morning before I set off for work!
By the time I got home we also had baby Blue Tits, sadly the weather had turned.
Great Tit demanding food again, I’m unsure exactly how many there were, but I think I counted at least 4 at one point.
They really do seem to shout at the adults sometimes!
“Finally, I’ve shut it up!”
I’ve also got another new visitor for my garden list… A Jay!
Is this a good or bad thing? I’m thinking the latter option, especially with all the youngsters around at the moment.
On a different note, last night we had some storms, it was so incredibly heavy that it would appear the city has had some flash flooding. My tub that I use for weeding was completely full with water this morning, it must be 10inches deep! Obviously I couldn’t say whether it then flowed over too, but I would expect so.
There’s some cleaning up I need to do as soil and stones have been washed down and the newly blasted walls are now a nice muddy colour. Looks like I’ll have to clean them again before I can paint them!
Prior to the flooding we’d had a nice sunny day and I’d been out in the garden weeding and such and taking photos. Today too has been a lovely day, just those 4/5 hours of torrential rain mixed with some hail caused quite a lot of havoc! So glad I wasn’t attempting to get home in it all, as typically it started around 3:30, I’d expect no less! :)
Thankfully I'm not in the same house as the floods of 2007, where our cellar flooded and we were at the top of a hill!
