    a Chiffchaff is blasting out this morning in the sunshine – the first time in quite a while that I’ve heard the song

    First new garden bird.
    Ring-necked parakeet.
    Not only did I get the garden bird but just beforehand the ( probably) same bird flew over
    chased by a crow. I was up early painting a fence; it’s the early bird what gets the worm!!
    I know they are spreading but still delighted with this one.

    When I moved into the conservatory for a cup of tea after the evening meal last night I noted a movement in the corner of the garden on the grass, then a sparrowhawk popped into view from behind a tree. It glared at me for several seconds then flew off. When I went to look I found that he had also been having his evening meal, with a well plucked and half-eaten woodpigeon on the grass.

    Ed: Colin’s photo of the Sparrowhawk dining area can be viewed in our Garden Gallery at Not for the faint-hearted.
