The silence of the last few days is as a result of trying to get to our French place. We were due out on Monday but just as we got to the gate we were told the flight was cancelled because of a strike by French Air Traffic Control staff. Anyway we finally made it this afternoon. Weather is not particularly warm but pleasant enough. Only bird of note on the way from the airport was a Black Kite.
Looking around the garden only Serins and Cirl Buntings were obvious.
By the way the prey of the Mink I mentioned a day or so ago was in my opinion a Lamprey.
