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.
