I’ve really been enjoying watching Springwatch on TV, and looking at the excellent website inbetween times. It continues next week on BBC2 at 8.00pm Monday through Thursday. Note that Springwatch Unsprung is on Friday at 8.00pm rather than following the main programme on Thursday, as it is today.
Last week whilst plotting I got a good look at a green woodpecker which flew low across the site at low level. I’ve also seen a couple of house sparrows on my raspberries and roses, and on Joe’s broad beans.
I’ve been catching glimpses of a fox, probably Fox Digger, recently and on Monday morning he rather warily ventured fairly closeHe then came up the path and I would have got a good photo of him had I not sneezed!
At home I noticed that the usual handful of starlings had almost doubled in number and a closer look showed that some of them were youngsters. Yesterday afternoon I saw a female chaffinch, firstly on it’s own then with a much more colourful male.
Tomorrow evening on BBC2 TV at 7.00pm is the down-to-earth comedy film Grow Your Own which I shall enjoy watching again.
Have a good weekend!
