Quiet day - puffed out

Felt somewhat knackered today so didn't do much. Weather was loads better than expected so spent most of the day outside. Birds in the garden are quite quiet now. Chaffinch has overtaken Siskin as the commonest, but there are still plenty of Siskin with 6 in the garden at any time. Yellowhammer are still feeding young. Decided to clear up the mess under the kitchen feeder - loads of organic matter and worms etc - Stock Dove feeding there whilst I was cooking tea.

Small Skipper confirmed today with 3 or 4 around. The Comma from yesterday was still evident. Various whites are about again, the rain seems to have really hammered them. Several Large Whites about. Also Meadow Brown, Ringlet, Small Tortoiseshell and Red Admiral.

7-spot and 14-spot Ladybird today.

Maybe I'll go for the Nightjars again tonight, see if the rain holds off and the wind drops.
