Plenty of House Martin

Many House Martin present around the garden with lots of fledglings recorded. Good news is that the/a pair of House Martin again appear to be breeding within the nest on my neighbours house over my driveway. Hopefully I'll get some that actually fledge rather than another pile of dead chicks under the nest! There was a good 50+ birds flying around the street this afternoon, many pausing to rest on the house roof and aerials. Good to see so many fledglings. Lots of Swift screaming around too.

We had an interesting visitor to the garden yesterday. While sat in back garden having a cuppa yesterday afternoon, with both dogs and the cat a racing pigeon dropped into the garden 'water-feature'! It didn't stay long though as it attracted the attention of all of the animals!
