Whilst watering and weeding yesterday morning one of the robins was my constant companion and at one point it disappeared into the washing up bowl pond for a drink! I’ve not seen any birds do that before so I was well chuffed. I’m finding that it’s virtually empty every morning now so I guess that the fox is drinking from it during the night. I just hope that at least one of the handful of tadpoles that are still in it survive to become a resident frog.
At home last Friday afternoon I noticed that there were lots of small birds flitting about in one of the trees out back. Because it’s now in full leaf it was difficult to see what they were until I got a clear view of one which thanks to it’s small size and long tail was unmistakable. That’s the first time that I’ve seen them here and I hope that they visit again.
It’s the last Springwatch tonight on BBC2 at 8.00pm, and tomorrow there’s Springwatch Unsprung on BBC2 at 8.00pm.
On Sunday at 8.00pm BBC2 is showing Wild Night In which is a two hour extravaganza in aid of the BBC Wildlife Fund live from London Zoo. All the Springwatch presenters will be joined by various celebrity guests including David Attenborough.
Have a good weekend!
