Pleased to hear the Lapwings back to their normal breeding field again this year, and loving the song of the Skylark enjoying the sun
:D I garden therefore I am

We've got a shell duck sitting on her eggs in our old hen shelter!
I love cooking with wine, and sometimes I even add food!

One of the nicest things about living in our new life is the new variety of wildlife we get to see. My most regular garden visitors at the moment are the wheatears and stonechats. They're constantly out feeding, and I'm pretty sure they're nesting in the garden wall.

We're also lucky enough to live in an area where we have both golden eagles, and the white-tailed sea eagle. We're pretty sure the sea eagle is nesting just a few fields away, round near the cliffs facing the sea. Mr (or Mrs) eagle is spending a lot of his time flying back and forth taking food back to the nest so we're crossing everything that they have some eggs or some young...

Loads of starlings with their young, some chiff-chaffs, and two baby tits in an upright uncovered water pump pipe that I used to stand my hanging basket on. How they're still alive is a complete mystery to me as it's made of black cast iron and must get so hot unless it acts like a funnel so the heat rises out. Pheasants, skylarks, goldfinches, doves, mallards and various warblers are also here.

Lovely to see some fledglings now: robins, blackbirds,  and young swifts now joining their parents in the sky
