Flycatchers are back

Great to have the spotted flycatchers nesting again. Almost the same place I hope the Magpies and Jays don’t read this, they have been a pest for several of our nesting birds. Having boarded up my spyhole from last year I’m repeating the photo from then.

We had absolutely no tadpoles this year – I wonder if it was because the water level was too low. There’s also competition now from a very large new pond (lake) built by a neighbour.

We also have a large number of Early Purple Orchids this year, well over 200, and visiting deer at our picnic table (almost).
