Many thanks to Alasdair Thornton who reminds us that the world's biggest survey of birds starts tomorrow - the Big Garden Birdwatch 2017. Last year, more than 519,000 people all over the UK counted 8,262,662 birds, helping the RSPB to build a picture of garden wildlife across the UK. Interested? You can download your pack here.
We're pleased to see a pair of collared doves in our garden again. For some time we've been without them.
