I am still enjoying the House Martins (see previous post). When their favourite puddle has gone dry I have topped it up with water. We have generally dry conditions prevailing at the moment so its quite gratifying so see how quickly they have responded, coming down to collect more mud for their nest building.
Other birds have been busy and are much further on. (Of course we are not far from the longest day of the year.) Resident birds come into breeding condition much sooner than migrants and my Robins already have young out of the nest. Despite that the young will forever beg for food so long as there's a chance an adult will feed. They make a nice picture with the reflections.
