The local Great Spotted Woodpecker pays our bird feeder a visit every day for peanuts.
New types of Butterflies have appeared, such as the Marbled White that loves to feed on the thistle flowers.
H3 is a female Buzzard that was ringed in Surrey over two years ago. You can see the green ring on her leg. She has a mate and I hope they have bred this year. Both birds are around most days. If they have just fed I can get quite close to them.

The Blackbirds have had their second brood in the same nest. All 5 fledged from the first brood.
