During a shower of rain last Sunday I had a flock of Sparrows visit my benches looking for insects, oh, and the usual Blackbird looking to remove every bit of moss it could find!
This flew out of my Beech the other day.
Wrong Tree Mate
This young blackbird snuck into my garage on Saturday past to get away from the heavy rain. It perched on top of the wrong tree 🙂
I had to catch another on in the poly tunnel before it done itself a mischief! Another smashed a pot in the greenhouse!! Found a few plants ripped out of the pots too, but you got to love them all the same 🙂
First Swallow 2014
I compete with my Dad every year to see who can spot the first Swallow of Summer. Yesterday I was visiting him at the farm where I grew up and guess what flew over head? I saw it first though 😀 A nice moment to share.

Belvior Forest Walk
Took our regular Sunday walk in Belvoir Forest Park in Belfast this morning. It was one of those days when you see unusual things. When we reached the river a seal popped up and followed us for a while, I think it was fascinated by my dogs. The feeling was mutual 🙂 It must be a good few miles up river from Belfast Lough as you can see in the map below. We left the river and came back past it later on but on the other side and low and behold, there it was again.
While we where watching in a Kingfisher flew past, Stephen first even sighting which made it special. Add in some other local wildlife and it was a great walk.
Won’t be walking for a while now as I managed to wreck my ankle in the kitchen on the return home! It never ends lol
