There are also lots of wild roses in the hedgerows now.
And, an abundance of cow parsley.
Soon after getting back home we spotted a gold finch and her two babies on the rotary washing line in the back garden.
The mother was just out of shot to the right of the picture having a good feed of Niger seed from the feeder and the two fledglings were perched precariously on the metal bars of the washing line. We watched then for quite sometime but no sooner had I got out the camera and hurriedly taken one blurry photo, they flew away into a tree and out of our sight.
