Garden update

The long-tailed tits are now very frequent visitors to the feeders, and often arrive with a coal tit. On Monday, we fitted a hanging bird bath in the tree, and as we did so, the long tailed tits landed brazenly within inches from our faces!

A young robin (just acquiring its adult plumage) is also now a frequent visitor to the fat feeder, and I’ve seen a blackcap twice, on the wall by the kitchen window. At least three magpies are regular visitors to the feeders, including the tail-less one, and I regularly see jays around the garden, but not yet in it.

Yesterday we saw a large blue dragonfly, which I believe was an Emperor Dragonfly, flittering around the garden.
