Rain and more rain. We get soaked on more than one occasion in the driving rain. But we have a Bullfinch visit the garden.This is very rare. Also a close encounter with a Kestrel out near Longnor. Blackbirds are showing interest in our hedge with a desire to nest again. Happily my fears that the Rooks had left the nearbye woods after some trees had been removed are unfounded as there are a few nests appearing.
