Inactive today

I have been close to home today doing a few things around the garden and house.  Still a Common Redstart and a Pied Flycatcher in the garden and a Short-toed Eagle went over.  I aslo enjoyed a wonderful flypast by a Southern White Admiral and a Hummingbird Hawkmoth.


We know winter is coming because a Robin has taken up residence in the garden.  It is interesting watching the interaction between this bird and the resident Black Redstarts.  The latter puff their chests out and chase the Robin away at every opportunity which means it feeds mostly along the fringes of the garden.

Black Redstart

I am very excited about tomorrow as I have been invited to attend a feeding station for Griffon Vultures well to the south.
