We have a new comer to the back garden. This is the first song thrush that I have seen since I have been feeding the birds and encouraging them to visit the garden. I know it is a common bird but it’s a new visitor to my garden.
I am ready for Summer time now. The wind can go and so can the cold, I am over it all. I want to be able to leave the doors open and be able to photograph the birds without having to put on several layers of clothing! Unfortunately Summer is never long enough.
Also only a few weeks away to my trip to the Gannets at Cape Kidnappers. In the past I have been there when there were no chicks, and I have been there when the chicks were quite large. This time I am hoping to find the chicks still small and fluffy and happy to pose for me. Hoping too that the weather is fine on the day we have planned there as there is no shelter to be had and we are out there for the entire day!
