Spent the last few days at the Old Vicarage welcoming visitors to see Jacob and popping down the pub - he is a local little star. Managed to get out in the garden and do a bit more on the bioblitz and had a good look round this part of Wormingall yesterday considering quite a few migrants about across the country- just a few Chiffchaffs, Swallows and Blackcaps- although the habitat with the old church and paddocks and woodland copses does look good for migrants- maybe too much choice for migrants round here?

The obligatory Red Kite photo- constantly overhead in the village , following tractors in the fields and sky dancing in the sky- epic Kite country.
