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 Pigeons have had another brood of chicks, finger crossed they don't get eaten like the last two.
The Blackbirds have had their second brood in the same nest. All 5 fledged from the first brood.
