It`s been raining almost none stop for days, but today (sun) i have managed to get out in the garden, but not the part where i wanted to go to. It`s the 1st of July and we have a pair of blackbirds making a nest in the pyracantha.... they started early this morning and were still at it this afternoon. I haven`t been able to get near where i wanted to be in case i scared the birds off. If they are successful in building the nest this will be the first nest ever in our garden. Is it too late for the birds to be breeding???? xxx

Not too late at all Daff. Blackbirds often have more than one brood a year as long as there are enough worms and bugs around. I hope your pair manage to raise their young and that they all fledge. Watch out for magpies though as they will rob a nest of either eggs or young!!
We have sparrows still building nests. The other day I was following one trying to get a picture of it with this big white feather in it's mouth. Looked like it had a moustashe. I see all these little sparrows with no tail feathers yet trying to fly. Pathetic! They don't go too far at one time. Dooley
I will keep very vigilant where the magpies are concerned eileen. xxx
What kind of blackbirds are they, Daff? We have a lot of blackbirds (grackles). I'd love to have some birds nesting! It is fun to watch the babies grow!
Hummingbird, The male Blackbird is black with a bright orange beak, the female backbird is more a brown colour with markings on her front. xxx
