Painting - 27/06/09
A big day on the south-face of the house. Lots of paint and a few birds. In the garden pied flycatcher and lesser whitethroat youngsters could be heard in the nest. The redstarts have fledged but remain close by. Two young green woodpeckers dropped in, presumably the young from the pair nearby. I never realised how quiet this species goes in mid-summer until I lived in a territory. A reflection in a window tipped me off occasionally to the silent passage up the road of a cruising red kite.
