Badby bird notes for June/July 2017

The house martins from the nest under our eaves have now fledged and we’re waiting to see if the parents will start on a second brood.  Other young birds in and around the garden have included blackbird, robin, song thrush, goldfinch, blue tit and wren.

The skies over Badby have been busy with swallows, house martins and swifts. Recently there were also as many as twenty ravens at once circling high in the sky above.

Since the buddleia came into bloom, we have had many butterflies on its flowers including red admiral, small tortoiseshell, peacock and also the occasional comma and painted lady.

BDHS – Pub Meet 20th July

Hi all,  firstly apologies for not sending out an email for last month’s pub meet,  unfortunately I had a bit of a crisis and it slipped my mind.  I know a few of you turned out anyway and I hope you had a good time.

This month’s meet is on Thursday 20th July, 7.30pm at the Windmill.  I will be there (although on crutches!), so hope to see you there.

Not long until the Annual Show, Schedules and Entry Forms will be emailed shortly……just thought I’d throw that one in…

Badby Soap Box Derby 2018

With a need to raise founds for projects within the village, we’ve come up with the idea of running a Soap Box Derby in the summer of 2018.  However, such an event will require great organisation with a team of people consisting of different skills which can be channelled into producing a great day for the village and, of course, hopefully, raise funds which can be used to good effect within the village.

Should you believe that you have a talent which can be of great help in the running of this event, please contact Steve Chandler, 01327 703540 or
