No sign of any new passage birds, but the residents are still proclaiming their territories.

Heron update:

It looks like one of the birds is slightly hungry and contemplating eating one of his/hers siblings.

The wing feathers are still not developed enough to start branching (wandering away from the nest).

These two have their eyes fixed on a tasty fly.

This one looks more like a pot-bellied old man.

Lovely long tail tit photo in the wind, made me laugh.

I'm only counting 4 swifts over my patch was up to 10 last year and 12 the year before that. Hopefully the wind has put them off.
