Who am I?

My photo
An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

More garden distractions

The weather has been glorious and the vast majority of avian migrants have been able to pass over the area unseen? There were a few pulses of Swallows, a Yellow Wagtail and seven Meadow Pipits (all S - SW) this morning with a couple of Chiffchaffs and, more notably, a pair of Blackcaps flitting around the garden shrubs.
Not going to cause much of a stir beyond my personal interest - but isn't that what this blogging is all about; sharing a very singular perspective on events and encounters?

along the gardens to the south
The only other sightings, of any worth, involve the local Jays which are actively engaged in collecting food from various sources and, as such, are very conspicuous as they fly between Ramsgate Cemetery, Broadstairs Cricket Ground and St. Luke's Playing Field. A lone Chaffinch, which perched briefly in a neighbouring garden and a sudden influx of Blackbirds (something which was noted at Sandwich Bay a couple of days ago!)
