This Swallow has at least 4 eggs now in our outhouse. This is a first timer in here because we only put a new roof on in February, so last year the building would not be suitable. I wonder if they are young birds?

There are still one or two Painted Lady around the coast path but not much else. So far this month I have had 43 bird species on the patch but haven't managed a thorough look around yet. Maybe this rain tomorrow will ground something like a Rosefinch or a Black headed Bunting maybe! No, maybe not...

The news about the Brown headed Cowbird only 15 miles away at the beginning of May smarts a bit. Now why couldn't it have been in my garden. Then at least I could have blogged some photos after I'd supressed it! :)

Can you shed any light on the observer?

Nah!!, don`t think you would`ve suppressed it, Stewart.

Alan - Graeme Bell saw it and has submitted it to BBRC after getting the call from one of his congregation...

Dean - No you're right, I couldn't have held that back!
