I had my first young bird in the garden this afternoon - a Starling, it didn't hang about too long but it's good to see.
My Laburnum is in full flower and always looks quite stunning and it's doing well despite being split in half by gale force winds a few years back.
It's a favourite perch for the many Goldfinch that are flying around the gardens chirping non stop at the moment.
Despite the many birds flying over the garden - Blackbirds, Sparrows, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Magpies, very few are actually landing in the garden, in fact today has been the quietest i've seen it in a while.
Of course the consolation is that the Swifts are also flying above the house and I can watch those pretty much from dawn to dusk, which is just perfect!
