Heard chiff-chaffs, skylarks and a buzzard then saw several swallows flying around.
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).

Just seen a largish bird on garden gate and few feet away. I thought it was a wood pigeon, but queried my thought and got the bins out.  Studied my bird books and I think it was a Sparrowhawk.  ( The other  choice could be a juvenile cuckoo, but the head and eye wasn't right)  Very beautiful.  then it flew away in the direction of were the sparrows are nesting in the eaves.    I wonder .     Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

The beak should be a dead give away for ID, straight for Cuckoo or Pigeon and hooked for a Spar .
