New Arrivals !!

34 degrees and Sunny!
Sunday saw the flight of the Goldfinch chicks (Chardonneret) from their nest, Chris was alerted to the much anticipated event with Bonny chasing the new fledglings around the top lawn, no harm was done, Chris was able to reunite the straggler with Mum & Dad, it has been a real pleasure having the Goldfinches around the place, we will be sorry to see them go.

Having said that, the Housemartin chicks also hatched yesterday, they took up residence under the woodshed about three weeks ago, it was amazing watching the nest construction day by day, now we will watch Mum & Dad raise the family, a sneaky photo revealed three chicks, however, Chris counted four eggs so we will have to wait and see, Have a great evening !!
