Storks gathering to migrate

I was in the garden when they flew over my head, by the time I had the camera they had moved on a bit, the black spot on the right of the lamp post is another bunch far away already, but you can still see this lot.

Plenty of wildlife where you live, Milly, but I wouldn't trade the hills and the moors and the coast of Devon.

I'm daft and proud of it.

When I open the pic Jan I also get an advert and pic for 'These 2 vegetables will kill your belly fat...'

Have you been trying to spruce yourself up for the new Hans?!?

(Lovely to have that view BTW)

We have a family of swallows bred four babies in the car port and now being taught to fly and feed from the owl box in our barn.

Been doing a bit of wildlife rescuing here lately.

1 bat (in daylight) escorted to outdoor safety from the kitchen.

1 frog and 1 toad fished out of water butt and released by the pond.

1 Moorhen chick released from Georgia's mouth and escorted to the pond.

The moorhens breed in our pond every year and, last year, produced four broods, a record for us. This year the poor things have had to contend with a mad spaniel and, lately, a huge digger making their home better for them (not sure they would agree but it had to be done ).

Not sure they are, officially, wildlife but we have a trio of Peacocks around the village. No one owns them as far as anyone can tell. Peacocks being the generic term as I think they are peahens from the brief glimpses I have had. They are not popular as they start "calling" at about 4am. They are feeding people's plants and leaving lots of manure as a thank you

No Jean, just off to the side. I am very surprised they haven't peppered the car this time. Must have been that good talking too last time.
