Another bird on the garden list and visiting juveniles

The latest bird sighting from the garden, which takes me to thirty-nine so far this year, is a swift.

I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a few weeks now.

This afternoon, with the weather being sunny and pleasant, I sat in the garden for a while.

There’s a lot more sky there than just watching from the living room, although that’s pretty expansive in itself, as we look out across a wooded valley.
