ma nature's lyrical with her yearly miracle...

Yesterday was the warmest day we have had this spring. In the garden this morning, a blackcap sang. The blackap is one of our migrant warblers and has a song almost as lovely as that of the nightingale.
Our other birds are well on with their breeding activity:

  • starlings have come back to a nest box at the side of the house
  • a wren has built a nest in the montana clematis at the back of the house
  • and I am scolded in the front and back gardens where tits have adopted two of the nest boxes
The apples are now entering their most attractive phase as their blossom opens.
