Repeat Visitor

Here's our latest repeat visitor, but, as you can see, not universally popular!

It's been seen both morning & evening at both recent weekends. First indication was a disgorged waste sac of fur & bones left on a tree stump.

We are also playing host to dunnocks & blackbirds nesting & have seen willow warblers in the garden, but haven't seen their nest yet. And jackdaws in the neighbouring barn.

Royal Wedding

What a splendid day in every sense! The crowds in London obviously enjoyed the day.

Here in Clapham, a "Street Party" was held in the childrens play park, with loads of food, face painting for kids & communal singing. A scroll had been prepared listing all residents of Clapham, Keasden & Newby, and all children in the villages were presented with commemorative "Kate & William" mugs to mark the occasion.

A great day!
