It's good to see that 'White-tail' the Blackbird which has had a territory in our garden, off and on, since the spring of 1999 is still around. Last time we saw him, some weeks ago, he'd lost some of the short feathers on the back of his head, but I'm glad to say they've now regrown, and he looks as neat and alert as ever. If only my hair would regrow like that.
As I mentioned the other day, with all our other commitments, the garden is beginning to run away with itself. The pond is now entirely covered with an ornamental water plant which I now need to pull out to allow birds and insects access to the water.
Recent rains have brought on the Courgettes which now have marrow-sized fruits.
