Garden notes

A coffee break in the garden late morning produced a couple of pairs of Swifts low over houses, whilst high overhead, both Kestrel and Sparrowhawk were seen.
Our Blackbird pair are now visiting the nest to feed their third brood and a quick check of the Collared Dove nest in the hedge saw a single young bird which is currently about two-thirds grown.
Many Starlings in the garden with full grown youngsters which are now quite confident and showing signs of independence.
Siskins were heard and Goldfinches were seen often in flight giving their 'tinkling' calls.
As my coffee break ended, a female Sparrowhawk made a slow, low level pass over the garden, and looking quite menacing too.
