A Lazy Day

The intended early morning visit to the Water Park didn’t happen as staying in bed seemed more appealing. When I did eventually drag myself up I had a fair bit to do at home as my Wife and Daughter were back home after a trip to New York. Have to say that I have enjoyed my few days of being home alone. Garden birding for me isn’t great as we just don’t get many visitors. Feeding is not an option as the local rat population always seem to turn up. A few things were seen though with the regular House Sparrows visiting the pond along with a couple of Starlings. The highlight was at least three and probably five Holly Blue butterflies along with an Orange tip and some Small Tortoiseshells. Buzzards were as usual over and a single Raven spent some time soaring above the house. Also of interest were a number of gliders using nearby thermals with at least five seen together.
