Time to keep the cats indoors

Not that I have any cats, but this week is about the peak time for fledging tit families and cats account for a high number of them as they find their way in the big bad world.

The Blue Tit parents are busily feeding the young on our house-side nest-box so I decided to have a look at how many were in the box. - eat least eight by the looks of it and all doing well. I suspect they'll be out soon but hopefully not tomorrow as some wet weather is forecast.

Atlasing this morning didn't bring any surprises but it was nice to confirm several species breeding status. A family of Redstarts were noisily harassing a Little Owl near where I parked my car and several Great Spotted Woodpeckers were out and about.
