It’s just coming up to 7 am. I’m sitting outside having breakfast enjoying what looks likely to be the last day of this spell of fine weather. Thunderstorms are predicted for later today and there are certainly lots of the clouds around that can are the type which are a precursor to the build up of cumulonimbi.

The male swallow is still around and yesterday a female was hanging around with him. I even saw them check out the old nests in the barn so things are looking promising.

A pair of great tits are nesting in one of our boxes. I’ve had a trail cam set up to track their feeding of the young. I was interested to see when they started and finished their working day. Seems to be about 6 am and 8:30 pm respectively. That’s a long day, back and forth every few minutes!
