Les oiseaux du jour

In the garden first thing - sparrows, three woodpigeons. We put up some nesting material (in a ceramic apple, which I hung in one of the small trees in the garden) and it is certainly being taken.

In the park this morning - something flying along the riverbank, but probably not a kingfisher. Otherwise, the usual. On Wednesday night, son and I saw a fox, in the playing field that adjoins the park.

In the park on the way home this evening, what I am fairly sure was a blackcap - audio recording (on rather old BBC Bristol webpage) here.

In the garden after tea (or is that supper?) this evening - a lot of starlings. Lots of blackbirds on the verges of the road, too.
